Re: Making a telescopic cover - tips please
Just finished 50 of them, using 3/4" exterior plywood. First I made a frame of 2" strips using tite bond and brad nails, than glued and nailed plywood top to the frame, additionaly securing it with four wood screws. Primed with oil primer, sanded, than painted with latex exterior paint. Before fitting a metal cover applied bead of silicone in zig zag pattern all over the plywood top. Secured metal to plywood with galvanized 1/2" wide T- 50 staples. Nice and heavy, these guys won't fly in the wind for sure.
