This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Metal Working.

For this BB, you will be make four matching angle brackets greater than 90 degrees to attach to a platform!  Say for a deer stand or water tower.  They need to be strong!

We're basically looking for a homemade version of the ones in this video:


The minimum requirements are:
  - four matching brackets
  - angled out to give your platform stability
  - capable of supporting a 1000 lb load (in total between the 4)

To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - The supplies you're starting with
 - Partway through the build
 - The finished four angle brackets
 
I'm not sure if I approve of this interruption. But this tiny ad checks out:
