This was part of my experimental web-site, so I'll toss out what I had there....

Hints on building a balsa truss page

Quick-N-Dirty entry:
Shoot for a stucture that will "explode" when if fails. Also, don't waste a lot of material x-bracing the two bents. (Look at the test jig first though!) Also remember the "zero force member" principle from statics.

This page (at this time) is an artifact of my setting up an experimental site structure.
