This was a Christmas project I made for my awesome little nephew. My wife painted it (I edited out our family name above “farm”). Sorry for the poor quality picture…Hopefully it’s enough to inspire a Christmas present for you though. The sides and roof are oak plywood, and the fence/beams are solid oak. Fun little project! Finished it with clear shellac.

Well done. I am sure he will have almost as much fun playing with it as you did building it.
