this week Henry showed us how to make our first flats. The design is quite simple, strong and easy to replicate making it perfect for us to try. You start by cutting your pine wood in to 2 - 8ft hight lengths and 5 - 4ft wide widths.(the widths actuality have to be 4ft minus the width of 2 bits of wood so your flat when constructed equals 4ft as a whole) You build the flats until they resemble a ladder and then you have to skin them as the skin makes the flat more stable. The skin is already cut into 8ft by 4ft so the frame fits well underneath. To fix the skin you have to glue the skin onto the flat so that when you pin it together the skin doesn't move away.
