Hoist Arch Is Finished

After about a day and a half of work, I put the finishing touches on the hoist frame. This is what I will use to pick up the shell and place it onto the chassis. As many builders have told me, this is something you will repeat many times, so finding four dudes to help you lift it just isn't an option.

I took TONS of photos along the way during this build, and I will make a detailed blog post about it later. I don't have a ton of experience working with wood, so there was a good amount of learning going on during this build. But, seeing as how it's really a temporary piece of hardware, I wasn't too stressed about it.

And here's a pic of me in my snazzy new coveralls, MySpace style!

Remember kids, safety first!
