Re: Wringing Bridge Cost- post design

I still think it is over engineered. If you ran the post on down to the bottom of the 8x8s rather than sitting on top, then bolted on beside it with 3 bolts or lags, you could get a better spread, and have the load in shear instead of crushing a washer, and no need for that other stuff.
