I have always used a cast hydrocal abutment or bridge piers in past layouts. I was planning on doing it again, but in one of those forward thinking moments the idea of what to do when the cast broke during moving the module came to mind. So what to do for something more substantial? Good question, what to use? While tossing some scrap wood into our outdoor fire pit/ grill, it came to me that scrap wood could be used as the core of the abutments and piers.
So I decided to test the idea.
The center pier that supports the steel beams will be concrete. Next step is to make it resemble concrete!
