Crossover Bridge Design

Chip sent in this question:

Hi, We are looking to build a crossover bridge and was wondering if you know where we could find some plans Thanks, Chip

The bridge our pack uses has been around for years. I don’t know who made it. Fortunately it has stood the test of time.

Roy’s Scouting pages has a bridge design which is nearly identical to the one our pack uses. The site includes detailed plans.

Another plan can be found at Lumberjocks. This page has a lot of pictures to show you how the bridge is put together. I do not do woodwork myself, but this design appears more complex than the one above.

A third design can be found at Stan Pope’s Scouting page. This design is hand drawings only, but is fairly simple.

Readers, do you have a favorite bridge design you’d like to share?
