A project log for Backyard Woody Climbing Wall

What do you do when a pandemic hits, and your climbing gym closes? Why, make your own, of course.

Went to the local hardware store to buy lumber and hardware.  Very busy today, as Michigan just went into pandemic lockdown.  I think all the folks that were just "furloughed" decided that if they were stuck at home, they might as well do a home project.

Picked up the lumber and hardware in our minivan.  Minivans are designed to be able to hold a 4x8 sheet of plywood if the seats are out, so no worries.  The big-box hardware store has everything you need for this project except holds.  Alex ordered a hold kit online as well as T-nuts, as they are cheaper in bulk that way.
