Stay cool, mate.  :thumbsup:

There's always something good to keep you going.

Personally, I've had a hell of a year healthwise, and it ain't over yet either, but hey, my middle daughter got married, has been made alumni of the year at her university, oldest daughter gave us our first grandchild.

Nothing's ever as bad as it seems.

And I love that photo.  :beers: :thumbsup:

A small amount of progress tonight, ended by sawing into my knuckle  :dunce:

With a bit of help from the Old Cobbler's cat Chesh, we've got the starting of the first raised section!



And also with it's 'lid' on



So, hoping that I've remembered how to embed photos that work (if not it's Chesh's fault!) small progress, but hopefully the start of getting something done!

The first time I looked the photos were offline.  I had to post them in my browser to find that out.  But then they came back again. :thumbsup:
With kind regards

Oh well. At least the blood provides lubrication for the drill. Hope the finger's not too saw.

Small bits of progress with some help from Chesh:D

Getting the raised sections built, need to screw it down in place, I think I need to get it all assembled etc before getting the glue out?




I'm guessing for access to under the raised section I need to cut out a fair amount of the board?



Or just small sections to allow access?
What's best while making sure good structural integrity?

Good to see significant progress. I hope someone far more knowledgeable than I on woodwork can answer your questions.

personally, I would remove the ply top from the frame, cut out the raised section and refit it on top of the risers.  You will no doubt need to realign the risers to sit on top of the cross members of the frame. Also add another piece of ply to each riser doubling the thickness and extending the bottom so it can be fixed to the cross members.

Thanks,

The second photo is looking down on the board, I've not put the raised track-bed on it's risers.

The main board was assembled as a flat base and glued in as part of the construction so I can't remove it to build onto the main frames, it was done this way as I wasn't entirely certain the track layout - the ideal would have been to have the risers as part of the frame.

My thoughts were to simply cut out access in that main board leaving 10-15mm of main board to the side of the risers?
