yesterday Jesse and I tried to put up a fingerboard. Fingerboards are strange little devices that mimic rock formations so that you can strengthen your fingers for rock climbing. We wanted to put it in the foyer. Here’s a simple “how to” for putting up fingerboards.
Step 1:Find studs in wall by drilling 47 holes wherever you think there might be a stud.
Step 2: Get frustrated and buy a stud finder
Step 3: Use stud finder to find actual studs
Step 4: Discover that there aren’t actually any studs because it’s an I-Beam
Step 5: Cut backing plate out of wood that stretches across jousts along top and bottom of I-Beam
Step 6: Mount fingerboard to backing plate
Step 7: Realize your screws aren’t long enough to mount the backing plate and postpone the project ’till later
Other than that, the weekend was a success.
