Show us more photos. Do you have any of the process? I’m so green at this, that I’m marveled when I get a square corner. So when a true craftsman as you post a project, I love to see the work that went into it. These, Miss JAG are beautiful. My wife will buy 3 sets!

Hey Josh – are you planning to clean up “your” old barn or just any old barn in town?? :~)

Good Job! I like the fact that you recycle lumber. I build most of my pieces from recycled lumber as well.
