First-timer from Chicago area

Postby randY49 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 6:45 pm

Hi all,

I've been lurking around the forum for a while gathering information and am now ready to take the plunge into building. I've decided to base my trailer loosely on the Benroy design, but with an even simpler design. I'm building on a 5x8 aluminum trailer from Northern Tool. My plans are to keep it a 'woody' and my target is to keep it less than 1,000 pounds.

I'll start a build journal once the trailer arrives (early next week) and I get started on the project.

Thanks to the forum for all the information, and I'm sure I'll have specific questions to ask as I go.

Welcome to the group. Enjoy the build process, I think it's a big part of the fun. Ask questions when you need too, because there are plenty of people to offer advise.
