Pagoda-Building Intensive with our equipment designer, Jafo
On Friday before ROPECRAFT Austin, we're bringing you the chance to build your very own ROPECRAFT-style pagoda!
In this pre-event intensive, you'll learn the requirements, techniques, tips and tricks to fabricate your very own ROPECRAFT-style pagoda to take home! Learn how we modified the original Jim Duvall design into three different pieces of equipment and then build your own! Participants will leave the intensive with a fully functional pagoda that is ready for play and the plans to do it again. Choose your project from the the options below and bring a friend! It is possible to complete this project without a second person assisting but you will find many steps easier with a friend to help haul.
PAGODA PROJECT OPTIONS
Pagoda 2.0 is the variant as seen at previous Ropecrafts. Footprint on the ground is 8'x4' and stands just over 8' tall.
Pagoda 3.0 is a smaller variant with a footprint on the ground of 4.5'x4' and standing just over 8' tall.
For those with ceilings lower than 9' there will be design modifications presented that will reduce the overall height without reducing the finished functionality.
Both variants will break down into three components for transport and storage that will require no tools to install or remove.
The presentation will cover a brief tool safety survey, fabrication of the guides and aids needed to complete the construction, guided step by step instructions to fabricate the individual components and in full assembly of those components. We will discuss finishing options (i.e. paints vs stains) but due to time and space constraints we will be restricted in what finishes can be applied.
Those that wish to bring their own tools will need the following:
Compound mitre saw - minimum of 10"
Drill with star bit and 1/8" drill bit
Router with square bit
All of these tools will be available to anyone that does not have them!
All raw materials will be provided on-site, and you'll need to arrange transport options before the end of our convention!
