Making the base for the curved roof on the end of the building.

Forming the curve in the roof section takes a lot of clamps.

Here is the roof section after the glue has dried.

Building up the steps to the observation deck.

The finished steps.

The wall along one side of the steps is cut from a solid piece of wood.

Nice steps. Looks a bit tricky to make, especially that small!

Very nice Ray.  Thanks for the history and the pictures :thumbs:​ It has been quite a long time since we have been up that way, that far north on the peninsula anyway.  I wish I could say I remember seeing that but..........sounds like an excuse for a road trip this summer.

Ray, This is going to be a very inspirational build, and the story that's goes along with it was a GREAT read. Thanks for sharing, and if I ever get back up that way, I will make a point to go by that airport and see it for myself.

 

Brian if you do, I will gladly act as an escort/navigator/co-pilot(I aint getting out on any wing though)/pain-in-the-butt, etc and accompany you on your journey.

The airport is a few miles north of North port right on the main road that goes up to the light house.
