Nice choice of wood. and nice construction. Is that wood readily available where you live? In florida unless you go to a Specialty Store your choice is basicaly Pine… Some Oak(Which for some reason I dislike) maybe some Plane Mapel, Pine pine and more pine and most of the Pine is PT
The girls will love it.
Would you be interested in selling some Mesquite? and mailing it?

Thanks for the comments, guys. The Mesquite was a chunk of firewood a friend brought back from Tex where they were clearing out a fence row the had grown up. The elm was from the grand daughters great, great Grandfathers homestead in eastern Colorado. The tree was a log lying on the ground that had been dead several years. Just cut them with my chainsaw until I could handle them on my table saw and band saw.
