I used screws and Titebond on my barn. The plywood on the joints gave me a flat surface and screwing pulled everything flush. I'm always reluctant to suggest my heathen ways to others though. How are the codes in your area? Out here we can Gravdigr the hell out of stuff but in town they start eye-balling. good luck gotta run for a week

It's coming together!
Finished truss number three of five last night. I'm learning, albeit, slowly. Just changed into my work clothes and now I'm headed back outside.

My friend T, whose clutch I replaced while he handed me tools, is helping me out of an abundance of guilty conscience (and an overpowering sense of reciprocity). I intend to take full advantage of it.

Pics later.

Two musical friends of ours are getting married tomorrow. They don't want wedding presents but on Monday night I had this idea ...
(I followed a pattern for the violin but made the trumpet up).
