|Roof, open back|
|Roof, interior. Wiring & precut rafters would be added by kit-builder.|
|Removing rod that locks finger joints at ridge of roof...|
|Pulling finger joints apart after complete removal of rod...|
|Separate roof parts: Front, back & rod. Now the parts can be easily decorated, stored flat or mailed! Also the structure is very lightweight - meaning less postage.|
I found that the finger joints were rather difficult to separate - had to sand each one. I don't want to do that again, LOL.
New concept that I will next apply to the walls & future roofs:
|The green color coded section is the open back frame, blue = sides & red = front...|
|Because of the new tapered finger design the front & back posts easily pull part without binding.|
...On the Verge of a Nervous Breakthrough...
