Re: Angel Light Observatory is Under Construction
I was looking at the rails your caster's ride on and it may not be a bad idea to drill small drain holes through them. You'll know exactly where you would need them after the first rain storm. Small holes will not weaken it any.
I agree with Mark on the concrete pier BUT it seems a lot of people are having very good luck with the wood one's, even for AP. I've never used one so I really can't judge on that.
Glad to see you're looking for a 10x10 Chuck. I'm pretty sure you'll be able to get one, even if you have to buy a short header beam and treat it yourself.
