bide a wee notes...
Nero and Willis hard at work...
Below are plans for a portable skirting table Doug made for me. I wanted a
table I could move around the farm easily and this works great. Weve even taken
it to shows and loaned it to friends. Photos are shown
*4 each 2"x 2"x 8 wood furring cut into 4 foot lengths
*8 each 3" corner brackets
*9 of 1" x 2 x 48" hardware wire cut in half
*Poultry staples (or staple gun) for tacking wire to frame
*Screws to secure corners
*2 each 3" hinges for connecting frames together
*1 set hook & eye to close up table for easy transportation or storage
*1 handle for carrying table (optional)
Form 2 separate squares with the 4 long 2"x 2"s. Attach corner brackets in
each corner. Secure corners with extra screws. Place hardware wire on frames and
cut to size. Attach hardware cloth with staples. Connect frames together with
hinges. Fold frames in half at the hinges and attach hook and eye. Attach handle
to end of frame.
Place two 8 long 2 x 4s across the top of two saw horses and place
skirting table on top.
*Skirting: The process of removing debris,
vegetation, dung tags, short fibers, second cuts, etc. from a freshly shorn
fleece. Ideally the fleece should be thrown on a skirting table
immediately after being shorn so contaminants can be removed prior to storage.
