Rain Starts Play

As it turns out I had some bits of 6" x 2" - can't remember where I aquired them, but far too good to leave in the skip...
Replaced the cracked side only -

cracked side removed:

Using old beam as template for holes:

New section in place...

...noticably longer than old piece, giving more strength at end grain hopefully:

1" ply load-spreading top plate refitted (tight push fit):

Better left for that bit of extra strength than sawn flush?

Hopefully this will last until I can make myself a better one from steel... just 290 litres to go ;)
