I built these two mangers for a friend, She gave me the sizes only,
19×11. I found a picture on the Internet and I used it for a sample
I built them using 2×4 lumber only. I ripped them down to 1/4×1& 1/2
Then I ripped some of then into various widths for the roof and sides
The rafters are 1×1. To get rid of the smooth finish that my table saw
left I ran all the pieces through my band saw by pulling them against the blade
at about 45 degrees back to front,this gave me the look of a 2000 year old structure
I was told that there where very few carpenters with table saws that
had carbide tipped blades back then.
I finished them with some dark walnut stain.
