We are now fabricating the triple common valley system. Set on “Old Glory”, the completed system will have 3 common valleys, 2 bastard valleys, 4 ridges, and myriad jack rafters. As Old Glory and two of the ridges and the bastard valleys are already together, we need to put the rest of the system together before we can cut it into the rest of the frame.
In this video, you see all three common valleys, already scribed and cut together, and sitting on their respective cribbing, in space, and prepped for the next step, which is scribing and cutting in the ridges that they sit on. As you may imagine, the 3D model in the computer is instrumental in getting these complex systems set up properly in space.
