With our impending move pressuring the time frame on this project as well as my wife being out of town this weekend this was a big weekend in the shop trying to get as much as possible done.
I can’t say at this point that I got all of the construction done like I had planned, but do have all the pieces made and sanded with primed. Tomorrow I am hopefully going to get the rest of the pieces attached to one another and then start the painting and staining. Not quite sure how that will take, but since it is a relatively simple finish job I can easily do coats in the evenings after work.
I have to say at this point it really does look like an alligator. I wish I could ad photos to this section, but I think that will have to wait until I finish it and post the final project photos—hopefully sooner rather than later.
