« Part 20: Shop Slab: reinforcing steel placement Part 21 of First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw series Part 22: progress STAGE 1 »

I have returned to working on the slab. I tripped and fell due to walking (or attempting to) inbetween the spaces of the rebar. Inevitably no matter how hard I tried to learn, or caution that I used, I mistepped and splattered. One time I caught the toe of my shoe just as I was launching myself over the footing onto the existing driveway and splattered hard face down onto the concrete. Another time my foot caught the line I had set for grade over the rebar and I fell hard onto the rebar itself. I did myself in when I threw plywood onto the untied rebar. When I stepped out the rebar underneath the plywood rolled and the wood itself spun out from under me.

Oh well! I am very sore still.

From this point on I would like to convey the continued slab construction in stages. Each stage will get its own posting.

STAGE 1: dobie placement and final steel setting.
STAGE 2: final in-slab lines and drains setting.
STAGE 3: pouring the slab
STAGE 4 the day after pouring and the beggining of curing
