I am going to build a catwalk. Guess for whom.
Today I bought a 4x4 x 8' cedar post and a 2x6 x 10' spruce plank. I am anchoring the post to the floor with deck mounts and the plank to the post and wall with 90° angle brackets. I was unable to find sisal rope but I plan to wrap the post with it. I might paint the bottom and sides of the plank with bright red paint.
I might just take a nap and and sack the whole project. At least for today.
I have been invited to go up the road about 3:00 to an apple pressing gathering. I will go in spite of my lack of energy.
