« Part 13: Foundation Part 14 of Spinnekop (windmill) series Part 15: Waterloop, wachtdeur en dekplanken »

To add more stiffness to the construction of the housing of the windmill there is additional bracing. These crosses are not in the fields where the doors are so I need to make six of them.

Starting off with very small lumber

Making mortises in the beams

Testing the fit while holding things in place with a rubber band

And then adding the cross

After assembling all parts I made until now fitting it all together

All things fitted in place. Time to fix the parts to there place

Drilling holes

Adding some nails

All bracing nailed in place. No more disassembling.

The progress so far.
