OK, so I changed to the picture of you running the precision finish carpentry chainsaw. Oh yeah, instead of backsides hanging out now it is the front sides.

When someone takes a picture of me I try to give them my good side. It's just that I don't have a good side. That's why I take the pictures.

Very nice work guys. What do you use as a footer to anchor the bridge to?

We use the plans drawn by Jon Waldo P.E. from the IMBA web site. We go a little beyond using deck screws instead of nails and adding galvanized angle brackets in the corners.

That diagram is from this set of instructions I found on the IMBA web site.

These bridges work well for us at Herbs. As I said elsewhere, we go a little beyond by using deck screws in place of nails. We also use steel corner braces to attach the end cap to the stringers and the stringers to the footers.
