It’s made of new SYP and old barn pine. My brother-in-law gave me the old barn pine after he tore down some old boat sheds that had been around for many a year and survived many hurricanes on the gulf coast. He lost his home in hurricane Ike. So I put it to use in this combo. I do not have any plans, just put it together as I went along. I started this years ago and put it on the back burner. I saw a picture of it in a magazine of some sort years ago. A partial build had been sitting in a dark corner of the shop. I had to redo some of the old parts because of some water damage or something that got on it. Anyway, it’s finally done. It’s a deep red color because that’s the way the wife wanted it. I don’t ask questions.
