This is a “minimalist” project. It’s made from two 6’ pieces of douglas fir 2X2 using only the table saw and sander. There is no joinery in it at all. Everything was clamped and glued – and that’s all.

Finish is three coats of sanding sealer.

Nice, beauty in simplicity! I like seeing what can be done with out fancy joining hardware or techniques.
