This was a plan from Wood magazine. I built a couple of these last year and gave one to my sister. She liked it so much that she asked me to build another to give to her father-in-law for Christmas. It is made from all cedar except for the redwood shingles. It is finished with tung oil.
I used copper tacks and glue to hold it together. I’m assuming the copper will cause the tannin to stain the wood and give it an aged look in no time.
