Community Table: First Bents Go Up

Lots of visible progress on the Community Table today. We installed the first four bents and beams to tie them together. Note: A bent is a section on wall

Getting organized for the day. The bents are laid out on saw horses on the right side of the building. The beams are on the left.

Raising a bent.

The bent vertical so the tenon can drop into the mortise. If it goes in at angle the tenon could snap.

Getting a mechanical assist to install a beam

Using the commander to hammer a beam into place.

So we were told to initial pieces we worked on.

Glad this one fit correctly.
