Last weekend the Mr. and my 3
Have a great week!
We get this request for measurements, etc. fairly frequently. Have fun!
Here is the design information for the Gaga Pit you requested.
First off, ours is six-sided with 8 foot long sides. You can make them larger, 8-sided with 10 foot sides, but we wanted to keep the size manageable. We used three 2”X10” X 8 foot for each side with ~1 inch spacing between the boards. I used treated pine just to make it last longer. I eventually stained it to make it last even longer and look nice.
The corner brackets were made at a local welding shop out of ¼ steel plate or whatever they have available. The attachment shows the size (30”X12”) with a 120 degree angle. I had them punch in the 3/8” bolt holes to save me time drilling and they can do it really easy. The only change I would make is to move the center bolt holes out further . The computer drawing shows the pencil changes. I found it was tough to get a bolt into the center holes as they were too close to the angle corner. I used galvanized 5/16 bolts with nuts and flat washers (total of 192).
When it is all put together it is really heavy, so you want to assemble it close to where it is going to sit.
Hope this helps and good luck
