That is a nice build. There is a way to “age ” those cut edges to match the weathered wood but I just can’t remember where I saw it. Maybe someone else will chime in that remembers.

I was going to consider taking some dark grey stain and hit it but the lady that bought it is satisfied so that’s all that counts
