Part of an order.

Made from rescued fence cedar. Box base is 12 by 19 inches. Wheels is 10 inch diameter. Frame is 2 by 2 .

Frame is glued and screwed for strength. I tested it by standing in it.

A light torching for the effect. The customer did not want rounded top; so the reason for the sharp angles.

It will roll, but is designed to be stationary. Total length is just under 4 feet.

It does have over 100 screws; so should stay together until the wood rots away.

This is really cool. I’ll have to show my neighbor. What I like a lot is that it can be moved easily if needed to. Nice work.
