chicken wire bridge

894 1
I was thinking of makeing a troll bridge with expanded steel, Then I wondered if about 6 or so layers of chicken wire would hold. Of course we would have to make a wood frame probablly from 2x4s. maybe wrap the chicken wire around one frame and then set it into another frame to make it flat to walk on. any Ideas? thanks in advance. I thinking the bridge would be about 3 feet wide by 5 feet, just enough to give you the hebie gibies walking over it. Just wanted to pick your brains!

Chicken wire is too soft, and without fastening each layer together at very close intervals you really wouldn't gain much strength from layering it. I'd look for expanded metal - a 3 by 5 sheet shouldn't be too expensive, and wouldn't be too hard to support. Sounds like a neat idea.
