Plumb bob Shovel Posthole digger Reciprocating observed or handsaw application knife Ratchet wrench 2 × four lumber 2½" screws Stakes Nails covering tape Cardboard concrete kinds Paper Concrete combine J-bolts with washers and nuts 2 × 10 pressure-treated lumber (rated for flooring touch) STEP 1: build THE BATTER forums A. lower 24"- lengthy 2 × four legs for every batter board (for such a lot initiatives you’ll desire 8 batter forums total). reduce one finish sq. and minimize the opposite finish to a pointy element, utilizing a round observed. reduce one 2 × four crosspiece for every batter board at approximately 18". B. gather each one batter board utilizing 2½" screws. Fasten the crosspiece approximately 2" from the sq. ends of the legs. ensure the legs are parallel and the crosspiece is perpendicular to the legs. lower the batter board items from 2 × four lumber and gather them with screws. STEP 2: SET THE BATTER forums & identify PERPENDICULAR MASON’S strains A. degree and mark the destinations of the 4 nook piers with stakes, following your venture plan. B.
