Tonight's Project

Station 1: Lumber. Each Cub Scout gets 2 poles.

Station 2: Sanding. While waiting to measure for drilling each Cub Scout will sand his poles.

Station 3: Measuring. Each Cub Scout will make two marks on each pole. 6.5 inches from the bottom, and 4.5 inches from the bottom.

Station 4: Pilot holes. Each Cub Scout will drill 4 pilot holes, one in each measured mark on each pole. The pilot holes should be .75 inches from each edge of the pole.

Station 5: Big holes. Each Cub Scout will drill four 3/8 inch holes, following the pilot holes.

Station 6: Hardware and foot blocks. Each Cub Scout will receive 4 carriage bolts, 4 washers, 4 nuts, and 2 foot blocks.

Station 7: Attaching. Using crescent wrenches, socket wrenches, and a rubber mallet, each Cub Scout will attach the foot blocks to the poles.

Station 8: Trimming. Adult leader will trim the poles so they are no taller than tops of Cub Scouts' heads when they are standing on the stilts.
