The jig for making the sliding hatch is made. All the beams are made. The sides for the hatch are glued up and curing tonight.
I'm using the poor man's clamp for the sides to the hatch. These are 4 inch PVC pipe cut into 1 1/2 inch lengths, and then cut one side for an opening. These are very good for some applications. I also have made clamps out of 2 inch PVC.
Progress has been slow the last couple of weeks. Other things have needed my attention. But, like the turtle ... slow and steady wins the race.
