Connecting a structure to an existing slab requires either drilling and setting an expanding anchor bolt with a galvanized post anchor (Figure 29-2) or connecting to the slab using an angle brace
Our buck is made of six pieces of 48" long rough-sawn 2 x 4s for the three X's, with four 1 x 6 horizontal pieces screwed to the legs top and bottom (two on either side), and one 40" angle brace

Connecting your structure to an existing slab will require either drilling and setting an expansion anchor bolt and galvanized-post anchor or making a connection using an angle brace
. In cases in which wind may lift the structure, consider using both techniques.
Photo 12 shows how to anchor the top shelf with an angle brace
. If you also want to anchor the bottom of the final upright, drive a trim screw at an angle through the shelf from underneath.
Pull the assembled spine up the scaffolding, and bolt it in place to the top pole pivot, making sure that the bolt hole on the spine for the angle brace

11 SLIDE the top end of the angle brace
