      Dave T's 2018 Build Challenge

      Of Course I'm in.     

       

      But even thou I've known what the challenge was going to be for a year and a half,  I struggled on what to build till today.  Several things were on the list,  Timber Truss Bridge,  Tunnel Portal and Water Mill.   But a moment of insanity swept over me I changed my mind when I got home from work tonight. 

       

       

      I Hope that I can keep within my 2x4..

      You had us all worried there for a moment, Dave.  4 years of challenges combined into one.  What a POWERful concept.

      OK GUYS......   I need an official ruling!!

       

      I started to figure out how to turn the smokestack.   I have a block of western cedar.   I think that turning the stack out of soft cedar will be a useless endeavor if I want it to stand for more then a short time outside.

       

      I would like to ask if it would be OK if I substituted  a like amount of ASH for the same amount of Cedar that I cut out for the stack?

       

      Dave

      I don't recall anywhere in the rules that stated the 2x4 couldn't be multi-species.  But, the most important question you have to ask yourself: Are you still having fun?  If yes, carry on

      Took me a minute, but it finally sunk in.  Thanks, John.

      Dave, I'm not even using my 2x4! When I took down my late dad's greenhouse I got 1/2 inch by 27 inch prime redwood and even though the layout is indoors now I m using it once again! It may be dry but there are no knots! Turn away with that ash! You have my support!
