“Measure twice and cut once.” Great advice and it proves itself in the work.
I needed some spare room in the yard so I put the pen to paper and brought out some tools to get at the process. End result came up with a tidy three bunk rack and she’s as sturdy as if you’d built it your self. Hey, that’s exactly what I did!
I’ve got another canoe landing tomorrow and the back yard isn’t getting any larger so I went out and bought some lumber and sketched out some drawings for a canoe rack. With a few measurements and modifications I was able to put together a 3 place bunk that is very sturdy and provides so much more room in the yard.
So, now we’ve got a red one in the garage, two on the new rack, and ….would anyone care to take a guess at the colour of the new one coming tomorrow?
This frame is solid and keeps the canoes off of the ground while providing easy access. I like it!
So with a little planning and the use of some old school carpentry tricks, such as a cedar shake for trim, this job came off within a couple of hours and will serve these canoes very well, indeed!
