Hello. I saw this project in a recent issue of Wood magazine and thought it would be a nice gift for our 4 year old granddaughter.
The plans also gave information on where to order the hardware (Meislers). It arrived this afternoon so I got to finish before supper.
The plans suggested using pine and that suggestion I probably should have followed!
I had some rough sawn hickory and decided to use it. Not a good idea with all the curves and tight places to sand.
Hickory has to be the closest wood there is to cast iron!
It was a fun project though and turned out well.
