The kiln dried wood for the lattice trusses of the South Wayne bridge project #4 arrived today!
Material List for One 32' long, 8' high, Town Lattice Truss (lattice 4' O.C.)
4 - 2x4's - 20' long
6 - 2x10's - 10'
21 - 2x10's - 16'
3 - 2x10 - 20'
4 - 2x12 - 8'
4 - 2x12 - 12'
10 - 2x12 - 16'
4 - 2x12 - 20'
Did a little scale test and can tell you that it looks like the dried pine is coming in at around 2 pounds per board foot. This makes the big boy 20' 2x12's used in the chords of the truss weigh in at 80 pounds a piece!
This coming week will be a busy one as I work to assemble the first real size lattice truss. Wish me luck and keep watching.
