Miniature Covered Bridge Construction By Bob Greenia 
Our son Scott had the idea of my building a miniature version of the Maple St. Bridge. We will bring it to Fairfax next summer.
I have to apologize for the condition of the shop. I started building the bridge instead of cleaning the shop when we returned.  
This is the pile of pine lumber that will be used in the construction of the bridge.

The lattice sides are now installed on the base of the bridge. The entire piece is getting black stain to make it look old.
