Nice neat work, Philip. You sure have a lot of geometry to contend with to get everything to fit together.

Yup, CAD has made up for my shortcomings too.

Thanks for stopping by Jim!

Well not really happy with stair jigs but the accuracy is spot on. My complaint is 12" rise, code is 7.25 and comfortable is 6.5. So if your a laser operator I pose the question, why is modeling standard 12"? Perhaps some manufacturer is cutting shorter step?

Anyhow more progress!

Philip,

It looks real nice. Good job.

The only nitpick I can find is that the railings on the platform should for safety reasons be attached to the insides of the posts; that way a person leaning or falling against them is not dependent totally on how well they are nailed to the posts to prevent a fall.

Itís coming along well, and quickly too.

Mike

Philip,
Excellent modeling, creating all of those odd joints must have been a challenge.

Thanks Mike, Tom, Larry, and Jerry.
After a second look the original tower had railings on the inside. Good eye Mike! I'll add some bolt details to the railings.

Hopefully those little guys won't be suing me.

Bolts sound good; actually you created an opportunity for a nice detail.

Presumably any lawsuit from little people would be small, argued by suits (size short) in front of a petit jury in (short) Circuit Court.
