What began as a tree, got to me from the lumber yard as a beam 5,5 meters long, 7,5 cm thick and 220 mm wide, was sawn up in two, flipped and joined at the ends to become my new ridge beam 11 meters long, 75 mm thick and ca 110 mm wide.
A ridge beam stretches into the distance.
Remnants of a snap-line showing the track I ripped along.
The measures you’ve got to not take all to literally otherwise you might wonder a bit. Well I don’t use numbers in the joinery work and my tape measure only goes to 10 meters.
