  My log project is getting over my head, which makes it difficult to scribe.  My log sauna is 12 ft by 12 ft, so I'm looking for a minimum of about 25 ft of scaffolding and I would like to get at least 6 feet up in the air.  I could buy more if the price is right.

Thanks, kboilers

I've built some mighty tall sawhorses before to get up to a good working height, would that work? Short of that I've bought used scaffold from the rental yard recently, might be worth checking with some locally.

I've got  some aluminum walk boards.  12 foot, 16 foot, a 20 footer and a heavy  24 footer.  I usually use mine with ladder brackets but if you had a couple of scaffolds on each end along with a walk board it might be something to consider.

If you go with an aluminum walk plank, get some pump jacks from a contractor supplier.  They go onto 2 2x4's and raise up the plank on both ends.  They work wonders for siding.  I had some, but my brother walked off with them and "lost" them.

Scaffolds are something you just can't get enough of.  ;) I doubt Atwwods has made it that far north, but I see the prices on E-bay have dropped bunches...shipping can be a killer. Atwoods here is selling sets with walkboards, braces, ect., for less then $175 Biljack style (Baker) small scaffolds are going for $99 on sale now.

Have always used "home-made" scaffolding, since I have usually have more time........and trees/lumber/planks........than I do money.  Just go to the nearest thicket and cut some 4-6 inch sweet gum of the correct length.  Depending on how tall they need to be and what surface I'm working on, either stand them up and cross brace, or put 'em in the ground with minimal bracing.  Have got a supply of 2 x 12 x 12s that I keep around for the walkboards.  Some 2 x 6s bolted or nailed for the supports.  Only problem, this stuff is all HEAVY.   When through with it, just disassemble piece by piece or, if it can safely fall, cut the poles with a chainsaw and let it come crashing down............
