My granddaughter’s parents requested that I make her a barn for Christmas. The blog on the story is here
So I finished the barn and we had our family Christmas on Sat. She received some horses for a Christmas present and after all of the presents were open I went out into the shop to bring in the barn.
The barn is made with 1/4” Baltic Birch and Sapele most of it resawn to 1/4” thick. The construction photos are on the blog. The dimensions are 22 1/2 long, 12” tall and 18” wide. The two connectors shown on the end are threaded plastic knobs they go through and attach to a nut that is incased in wood on the inside so the nut is not lost. You can see the overlap sections on the forth picture.
So here’s Savannah opening the barn

I received these pictures tonight by e-mail. She has set up her barn at home.
She scarfed some wood chips for the stable today, from the stable today.
