With the Carib huts done. I turned my attention to a rope bridge. The Jungle crawl ended with the pirates finding a rope bridge leading to the Carib village so how to make a rope bridge???
I started by building a quick wood support to help in the construction phase. This was made from some wood scraps I had lying about. I drilled a few holes and bent some heavy wire. In this case, it’s actually a couple pieces of welding rod bent to shape. I soldered these together to form the actual support for the bridge.
Next I cut many many random length skewers using my new miter cutter.
I then “tied” each “log” to the support frame. Working my way from one end to the other of the bridge took a surprisingly long time (a couple hours), so far I think it’s looking good. And, it’s quite strong so far. 🙂
