Pablo Teodoro recreates Don B's Mini
[Thanks to Pablo Teodoro]
Pablo T, has been building a mini exactly like RampPlans very own Don B. He did such a good job documenting his progress we couldn't wait till it's finished to show you the photos. However we've now posted the entire photo journal. This is an extremely good set of documentary photos on how to build a mini.
If you look closely you'll see how to align the joists for your first layer of ply, how you should offset your second layer of ply so none of the seams line up, how to do the coping with the threaded rod method, how to use a board as a template for your screw patterns, and other good stuff.
Because he wanted it to be exactly like Don B's Pablo actually got a bunch of remote help from Don. Don says he's going to go out and visit when it's done. This is what Pablo had to say about Don B.
Don B. has been extraordinarily helpful. We have had at least two lengthy telephone conversations and several email exchanges. He has given me careful instruction which will undoubtedly be the difference between success and failure in this venture.
Don is available for contracting on our contractors page.
