It took Mother Nature a long time to create but, this is all I have left after three hours and fourteen inches of 1×12.
All it took was rushing a little of the sanding part and breaking the head off of the piece.
Oh… and uttering ‘that’ word loud enough for all three of my dogs to respond.

I love the grain pattern! What finish did you use? Could you post more pics of this from different angles so we can see the joinery? Nice Work!

I would love to make this project but I don’t know where to get the parts. Could you post some links to a shop? Do you have a video of the process?

That’s a mighty fine pile of sawdust… maybe you could mold it into something?

Thanks for the inspiration.

I like it. Jack was right. A squirt of glue and clamp her up over-night and no one will ever notice.
