This project was done using some purchased plans, I downloaded online. It’s my first non shop related jig or workbench.
My wife wanted something to place on an old stump in our front yard. It was the most challenging piece I have done thus far. I learned a lot about cutting angles and tapers. Everything I’ve done in the past has mostly been 90 degree corners. This required compound angles. But it seems to have turned out OK, and my wife is happy.

That is really cool. I always wanted to make one but our subdivisions association would no allow it.
