My g.easel, a multi-purpose 4-in-1 design for plot

Postby no_akira » Thu Jan 25, 2018 4:25 pm

A little bit of "lottie" ingenuity

Its a 4-in-1 design; #1 Compost bin ladder, #2 Bean frame (curved), #3 Wind break, #4 Seedling Cloche. Dimensions are approx 2.5' x 6.5' or 0.76m x 2m.

All held together with x4 Turbocoach screws that can be driven in without pilot holes straight throu the metal tubes into the battens. A quick tap on the turboscrew with a hammer to puncture the metal is all that is required.

Because of the issues I felt I had with the preservative on the wooden battens or the soft HDPE plastic grid that I used on the 2017 mk1 design, I'm hoping to be as "inert" as possible, untreated battens and old galvanised heras panels to aviod issues with fruit setting.
