Here’s my first attempt at shooting a video with the new camera. It’s not real exciting, but it shows a bit of my approach to the construction. You can see why it’s so slow. I’ll try to do some actual editing and explanation on subsequent videos, this is somewhat of a technical test. I’m pretty happy with the quality considering it was dusk.
Here you can see the curved main rafter. I’ve cut off one end to the proper length, and I’m cutting the notches for attaching the side posts. The uprights will be laminated from a 2×4 and two 1x4s, as you can see here I’m allowing room for the two outside thinner boards to carry on through to the top and the thicker middle will stop below the rafter to hold the weight. I’ll then peg through the sides to fasten together.
For a closer view of the finished rafter end, see the picture in the previous post.
