Sliding hatch

Sliding hatch
Originally uploaded by Sadlr

As you can see [and read in Dutch] on their website, Eddie and Marja have hung the doors on the Dankbaarheid's cabin [roef].
These bits of wood on our workbench are what remains of the sliding hatch over the doors. It will slide on two wooden runners bolted to the steel flanges on the roof.
Claudia has made up the runners and a frame to ensure that they go on straight, and has drawn up the front and side elvation of the hatch.
Start up the thickness planer.
