This was my first major project and it took me about 3 months to complete as my spare time is usually on the weekends. I started with rough sawn Red Oak, so all material had to be milled. This certainly reduced the price of the lumber and the first time I used my new 13” Ridgid planer (In my book, a fantastic machine). I had ideas from pictures and tried to keep the disign simple as I had not worked on a project this extensive before. It took time and patience (boy, this can be difficult), but I got through it and I am proud of what I ended up with. I used some techniques I have never used before, learned a lot, and had alot of fun.
