This is an end view of a upright support. I've routed two groves, one for a wire and the other to hold the sections with holes to string the cables thru.
These are paper cutouts of the X supports
This is the bottom of the roadbed. I routed a 1/4" x 1/4" grove on each side to hide the cable, It should have been deeper.
This is the top side of the roadbed showing holes drilled for the cable, 1 1/2" apart. The wider space showing is for the upright support.
I came up with this method to hold the roll of weed eater twine
Here I've strung the first strand of cable, just kept threading it back and forth, aprox 40 ft. of cable.
This is what I used to hold the cable in place and tight. A small cable crimp end, turnbuckle and a cup hook
Cable crimp in place, just need to cut excess off.
Turn buckle attached waiting for the "cup hook crew" to show up.
Each section takes about an hour to string.
The total length is about 8 ft. I started out with a 1" x 8" x 8' and the supports are 27" tall.
I'd be happy to answer any questions anyone has.
Thanks for looking,
