Catenary


Some unpainted dudes face some other unpainted dudes on a 50′ bridge which sags 5′ in the middle and whose glue is not yet dry.

Each “step” is 1/3 of an inch, which is the thickness of a dwarven forge floor tile. The shape is a catenary, of course. I’m thinking of doing a 50′ bridge where one end is 10′ higher than the other end, now that my spreadsheet is cooking and correctly calculating the shape.

Once the glue is dry, I’ll stain the wood with ink, then bind the wood to the wire with some twine – hiopefully it will look like rope. The ends of the wire will just sit on the tiles. Maybe I can decorate them to look like posts or stakes driven into the ground.
