This is a project that I built for two of my grandchildren. It is made out of white cedar with a coat of rain coat by para paints on it then a few coats of outdoor spar varnish. The rain coat gives it the honey shade

Thanks for looking

That’s a great looking project. I don’t think I have ever seen a double like this.

Beautiful design, beautifully executed, and for the most precious of customers!

This is a wonderful project and it looks like you have a satisfied client as well. This is something that they will enjoy for some time to come and I am certain will pass it on to their children as well.

Thanks for the post. By the way are there other projects in the works for the other grandchildren? :)

Wow. This is an amazing project to build child-sized. If I was going to put in that much work, I’d want to be able to use it myself. <g>
