Prime Minister Kevin Rudd intends to form a task force to look into closing the Garden Island naval base in Sydney harbour and moving the ships to HMAS Sterling, Broome, Darwin, and possibly Brisbane Townsville and Cairns.
At last we have a politician who can see the future need to build up our defences in Northern Australia. Whether short sighted politicians will follow through when the time comes will be another Question. Garden Island naval base is on the dearest real estate in the land and is nestled in the centre of Sydney.
Brisbane may be a suitable site for a ship maintenance base but harbours in the Townsville Cairns area should be closely scrutinised for suitability as it would be much closer to where the warships are based. The three hardened naval bases on our northern shores should be at Broome near the bare base RAAF Curtin, Darwin and Weipa in Cape York Peninsula near the bare base RAAF Scherger. At present it takes ships at least 4 days to sail from Sydney or HMAS Sterling to Darwin and this is just too big an advantage to give an enemy if Australia is under attack. Rudd has said that these relocations would not be funded out of the defence budget but I assume by special grants and sale of the Garden city site. These changes could lift our defence forces out of the present pathetic apathy because of governments starving them of funding. Governments may see value for money in implementing this new plan and generously fund the changes resulting in the first time ever Australia reaches a point where it can defend itself with some vigour and purpose. Christopher Whitelaw Pine (known professionally as Chris Pine) is an American actor best known for playing James T. He attended Oakwood School for high school and received a bachelor's degree in English from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2002.
He identifies as agnostic and has been in a relationship with model Dominique Piek since early 2012.
Some of his first roles included guest appearances in television shows such as ER and CSI: Miami. In regards to his character, Pine liked how Jack was "caught up in extraordinary circumstances" while "conflicted by [his] own doubts". Regular Egg Garden Table with table base moulded in marine grade glass fibre and toughened glass top, shown here in clear glass. I love the simple design of the table and the contrast of the white with the dark wood top.
Well, I will tell you all that I wasn't sure I could create something beautiful and keep it budget friendly for this particular type of outdoor structure. Showcase: Built From These PlansI am so honored each and every time one of you fine friends builds from these very plans!
For Installation using method below: otherwise you will need to purchase alternate hardware for fastening to concrete in a form or using post anchors on your patio etc. Note: This cut list will change if you alter your method for installing and change the dimensions.
4 - 6x6 Posts at 8' if you prefer 10' height, this will change as an exact measurement if you install as outlined below. 8 - 1x3 at 7" (Upper Post Trim) - if you prefer to miter the corners you will need 16 at this length. Before beginning to build, always check in on my site to make sure you have the most up to date set of plans, I occasionally update and change the plans to make the building process easier or to allow for less expensive purchasing of materials! Dig each footing hole about 18-inches-wide and 24-inches-deep, or to the frost line, whichever depth is greater. Image of the different options explained: click on the link above and scroll down for information on these methods. Build the Frame of the structure: Attach the beams with Screws, then drill for bolts and secure using 9" Carriage Bolts on the sides that have double beams. This image shows the manner we will attach the beams in example C: and in the right hand example in the image just below that.
Attach the Rafters: Use 3" Galvanized Deck Screws, pre-drill at an angle down through the side, then bottom of the rafter, and into the beams. Trim out your posts up at the top under the beams and at the bottom covering your hardware or for decorative purposes.
Image Source: the few images included in addition to my own drawings, are from the site I have provided a link to above, for installation methods.
It is extremely important that all garden buildings are constructed on a firm and level base which is constructed from the correct, durable material. We also specialize in Custom Made Sheds and delivery areas include London and the South East, including Kent, Essex, Sussex, Surrey, Middlesex, Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire & Middlesex. This task force will have a serious job to do in shaping our defence posture for the rest of this century.
In any conflict it will be one of the first bases targeted by the enemy and in a severe attack hundreds of thousands of Sydneysiders could be killed or injured.
The time to move is now with the proceeds of the sale of the site put towards establishing another naval base on the east coast of Australia to carry out heavy maintenance and servicing of our ships and submarines as well as three battle hardened bases in Northern Australia to berth, fuel up and arm our battle fleet for extensive exercises in northern waters in order to defend the nation or carry out humanitarian tasks in event of natural disasters. These RAAF bare bases should be made fully operational over time to combine with the naval bases and provide air cover for the navy. With the ships stationed at Broome, Darwin and Scherger the enemy can be engaged immediately further out to sea and this could be crucial in achieving a satisfactory naval engagement. Other bases in the south of Australia could be partially or totally sold off or reduced in size and those proceeds and savings put towards the proposed new bases.
These new bases could double the effectiveness of our fighting forces in defending this nation at minimal additional cost when taken over thirty years.

His father, Robert Pine, appeared in CHiPs, and his mother, Gwynne Gilford, is a former actress who is now a practicing psychotherapist. His film debut was in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement as Lord Nicholas Devereaux, which was released to a strong box office. Playing Jack marked his first voice acting role, which he enjoyed due to how it gave him the freedom to go back and tweak parts until he found "the right color".
This project took the top off a table that was no longer in favor, and improvised a new base and legs for it. I clearly didn't have enough faith in myself because now that I am finished, I feel a bit like superwoman! If you need help calculating any of your new dimensions, feel free to send me an email and I can help walk you through it. If you are planning on cementing the post directly into the ground, you will need to allow for that added length. Choose wood appropriate for outdoor use if possible to ensure a greater lifetime for this structure. Some counties are very strict regarding anything that can be construed as a structure in, near or around your home. Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project.
Fill each hole with concrete, then insert a 42-inch-long piece of ?-inch-diameter galvanized-metal pipe.
For those of you working over a patio you will install the posts with the hardware required and make sure each post is plumb and square to all of the other posts. Go through the beams and the post, slip on a washer and nut on the inside of the inner beam or post and tighten. Fasten the first screw on one side then the next screw from the other side, and so on, so that it is well balanced and supported on both sides. Next, draw out the fox's head starting with the triangular shaped ears, followed by the shapes of the tuft on the cheeks.
We will start tackling the body and the first thing we do for that is draw out the fluffy chest. Continue to draw out the body by making the shape for the back, hind leg, and the back paw.
Assembling the base incorrectly can lead to future deterioration of the product such as doors dropping out of square, thus becoming complicated to use or causing a water leakage. He has an older sister named Katherine who has dabbled in acting, and is maternal grandmother, Anne Gwynne, was a Hollywood actress. The Building Department can help you determine an appropriate distance from your home as well as an appropriate level to bury your posts.
If you print out or save plans, be sure to check in on my site to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans, as I occasionally update things for ease of building or buying. I have designed this to be at an 8' height and width for cost, however you are welcome to increase this height and the overall dimensions as desired for your space.
Feel Free to link to any of my plans so long as you ONLY use 1 image and provide an ADEQUATE link back to the original source and appropriate plan! Once that is complete you can draw the paws, and marking lines on the legs as well as some elbow fuzz. Note: The incorrect assembling of a garden building on an incorrect base is also likely to void any guarantee that may come with your shed. Pine's ancestry includes Russian Jewish (from his maternal grandfather), Welsh, and English.
You will want to secure them just below the frost line if you live in a locale that has freezing temps at any point. If you are new to building, read through the GETTING STARTED section and other articles found under the BUILD tab in the menu on my site, it has valuable information about how to get started, tools and techniques.
If you go beyond the 10' mark, consider adding a third pair of posts to increase the strength and stability of your structure. I wanted to keep this simple with no special tools required but this is subjective and you can choose your preference.
Since this project is about being efficient and budget friendly I am giving you permission for overkill because it is easier that way.
Plans from this page are not to be used for commercial purposes or republished without the express written consent of Rayan Turner, The Design Confidential I hope to provide accurate plans, however, I cannot guarantee each plan for accuracy.
I don't know if I will continue with this type of style because it all depends on the mood I'm in. Kirk in the 2009 film Star Trek, as well as subsequent films, that earned him worldwide renown.
If you are unfamiliar with the finishing process, visit my Finishing school for some tips and tricks for painting like a pro and for special finishing practices. Check to be sure that each post is perfectly plumb; if necessary, drive a cedar-shingle shim underneath to align it.
Again you can choose to miter the corners for a more finished appearance but this is optional. Not every plan that I post has been built and tested, so you are building at your own risk. First of all, always remember that placing the base too close to any walls, fences or other objects may cause problems. The Hollywood Reporter named Pine as one of the young male actors who are "pushing – or being pushed" into taking over Hollywood as the new "A-List". Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. It is recommended that you have a clear understanding of how the project works before beginning any project. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages.
Branches are likely to grow and come into contact with your shed, so do your best to avoid. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using, or contact me via email or post to the forum before you move ahead.
Check for overhanging foliage regularly as any rubbing on the roofing felt may well lead to your shed becoming vulnerable to adverse weather conditions and even rain.
The reason for the original excavation to be 2" bigger all round is to take into consideration the wooden frame, you will now have an internal area exactly 8'x 6'. If you decide to use thicker timber you will need to take this into consideration at the stringing out stage. A concrete mix of 5 parts ballast 1 part cement should now be mixed and poured into the area, enough concrete should be poured so that it is just proud of the formwork, it can now be tampered down level and flat using a straight piece of solid timber, the result is a smooth level concrete pad.
This wooden frame can then be levelled into the pea shingle for a well drained wooden base.
Which ever base you decide to build it is important that the floor has enough support the entire length of the building and this support has to be level and flat.
