If you would have to built a bridge in place like pic-related with only wooden planks, various nails and wooden pillars, how you would make it done? What design you would use?Consider the fact, that this place get flooded every spring.
+1 for arch
>>2380821>>2380825>wooden archBut how?
>>2380858pay attention next time you go to McDonald's
>>2380788Using nails is a fool's game at any rate, for a structure like this you'll want to use screws, bolts or preferably all-wood joinery. Also, only wooden planks? You're not gonna have the option of, say, a concrete, stone, or brick foundation at the ends? The less you have your wood touching the water and the ground, the better potential longevity.Design should depend on the loads you want to move over. For such a small creek, if you just want to walk over without getting your feet wet can probably get away with a little bridge without supports in the middle, maybe arched a bit if needed be. But if you're planning on moving cattle or cars over it, you'll need a lot more support which'll involve putting pillars in the ground and a generally flatter design.I'd suggest you try to watch some letsplays of bridge building games, then some videos on load bearing construction. Cause if you need to ask such general questions about bridge building, you're not really ready yet.
>>2380949Hi, shopanon!Use pt 4x4s and deck boards. Make it straight, just build it higher than the flood height and put steps.
>>2380788Chop down 2 trees, at least 10" in diameter at the smallest, and 6' longer than the stream. Put the ends up on smaller logs or ideally rocks, to keep the ends from rotting out with ground contact. Then, add some planks and you're g2g
>>2380788What is this?
>>2381068WTF happened to my image?
>>2380788>how you would make it done?Pay attention to class, 12 year old.
I would use concrete
>>2380788go to the do it for me board. this is do it yourself.
>>2381436Finally, there we go lol. Take that down and rebuild in the same spot. If you have the right saws and such you can make a nice sturdy as fuck arch. If not you can do a nice log bridge like >>2381075 suggested, it's cheap and sturdy and will last a few generations if it's elevated properly, although you really should have rails on both sides for safety and bridge structural integrity.
>>2380788Check out Da Vinci's self supporting bridgeScalable, easy to do yourself if it ain't to big, sturdy as fuck, looks good if your thumb ain't planted firmly in your ass
>>2381623Here's a pic of the general idea, you can make it look better though
>>2381627too steep for a towing a trailer over
>>2381657>towing a trailerWhy didn't you say you needed it to support a vehicle in the first place?
>>2381657lmao the difference between building a footbridge and a truck-bearing bridge is colossal. You're in way over your head; I'd advise reconsidering this plan before you end up with a truck in the river or dead.
>>2382051>Why didn't you say you needed it to support a vehicle in the first place?Because posting details is impossibru for zoomers who expect everything is the same everywhere. Great movie as was its ancestor BTW.
>>2380788I bait my creek with old washing machines then it fills up with BMPs. After their turrets fly off it's easy to plank over the hulls.
>>2381657Nah, it's just walking bridge.
>>2380788>>2380788>>2380825>>2380949>>2381071>>2381436>>2381627This thread gives me comfy Calvin & Hobbes vibes
place rocks as base, lay logs, nail planks
>>2380788Is there a reason why I'm limited to wood? Because I wouldn't use wood.
>>2383320Money, time, required skills etc. Plenty of them.
>>2383320I'm building a causeway of rocks across the river next to my house
>>2384417Getting about 4-5 ft done in a few hours on sunny afternoons
One of the 3 bridges I built across the stream on my land. Having a limitless supply of stone is nice.
>>2384434I hope somebody knocks hat gayass cairn over.Bridge looks chill tho.
>>2381602Damn that's some serious wood bending>>2384462> pure /out/ autismI think you are lost fren
>>2384477I understand their sentiment when it's public land, but I do whatever I want on my own. Here's another one of my bridges.
>>2384477>>2384573It still destroys the habitat of whatever was living under the rocks.
>>2384579Nature is overrated sometimes. Before
>>2384579Do you really think that at the scale these miniature bridge buildings are happening that it's that big of a problem to be upset about?
>>2381657>He needs more than two logs
>>2384617picrel is 3 logs
>>2384581proper forest management practices do wonders
>>2384573>I do whatever I want on my own.I've had clients that held that attitude.Court's not a fun place to be told you don't own the stream.
>>2384733How many logs come from a tree. If you cut a tree down you have a log, if you cut that log in half is it 2 logs, or 2 half logs.
>>2382919That looks like the park I used to live in, in British Columbia.Cozy indeed.
