I have a large cable drum (5.9'/1.8m) . I will attach a ladder on one side and a slide on another. I wonder how to place it on my lawn. Once I roll it into place I plan to to trim flanges a bit to create some flat footing so it won't roll.
Since it is made out of wood I need to protect it somehow. As I write this I had an idea to make a square concrete slab in the middle of my lawn, square slab will allow to rotate the drum/slide in any direction as time goes and things change. Sides will be painted various colours, the main concern are the two flanges potentially resting on concrete. At the moment it is resting off the ground on two treated pieces of beams.
Any ideas? I have some bitumen paint, that might not be enough. Maybe galvanized brackets under flanges?
