View Full Version : jenny creek kiosk work day

06-27-2007, 07:58 AM
ok, so I think my life is back to normal now, so back to the grind. Literally.

We have to complete a kiosk for the jenny creek trail head. I have almost all the materials.

I would like to have a work day this sunday if possible. I will need 2~3 bodies. You don't have to be a certified welder or anything like that. I will most likely be "sticking" the kiosk, due to the ridiculously thick material the rangers bought.

We need people to clean, sand, grind, and cut material. Must be able to measure twice and cut once. We will not be putting it together, only cutting the pieces and prepping for welding.

I also need about 4 feet of 1/2" cold or hot rolled round bar, and 4 feet of 1/2" id tube/pipe, either schd 40 or 80, or .125 wall.

I have all tools needed, providing the big arse sign post material will fit in my band saw. If not, we will torch it and clean the cuts.

1 gal acetone
4.5 flap wheels 80 and 120 grit. HF wheels need not apply

BYOG (bring your own gloves)

I got a hall pass. Starts at 1pm, though, so I wouldn't get up there until about 2. Is that too late?

I just finished the honey do list, not going to make it down this time, sorry.

Well, SeldomSeen and Hants showed up and brightened our day! We got most of the kiosk built, with only a few errors, no injuries, and only a moderate amount of suds consumed.

We even managed to engineer a strategy for getting the big thing in the ground without having it fall down. And even agreed on it. With apologies to Guinness, BRILLIANT!

In a couple weeks we will be finishing the kiosk, and then we will be ready to install it in the location chosen by the rangers. With some media attention if all plans hold! So plan on a nice relaxing overnighter up by Yankee Doodle, with a few holes punched, a center post installed and cured overnight, and the remainder installed on a Saturday morning with not a whole lot of labor time.

I'll be happy to try and distribute a press release again. ;)
