of the Rear Platform
job of lining up the individual wooden slats on the platform
was achieved after many various measurements and the use of
setting blocks to the correct spacing and uniformity meant
that work could commence.The
lengthy process of screwing each of the 24 slats to the platform
was undertaken but not before the underside of each slat was
coated with varnish. It did take a couple of visits to complete
the job and the one final touch was the application of a stain
varnish to the upper surface of the slats.
the slats complete the next item was to position the centre
platform pole and determine how it was secured at the upper
end, and once agreed upon much head scratching as to where
on the platform the pole went through, but once agreed upon
a suitable hole was drilled and the pole lined up.
