Can’t seem to get the design right to finish this, Help!

It allows the basic coverages required, and I’ve been taking showers in it just fine for a couple of years, has hot and cold water and soap dish, so the basics allow me to procrastinate finishing it. Wife growing plant up it helps cover the unfinished woodwork.

Make of cedar, mahogany and slats of 1×4 pvc.

Recently, I think I have figured out a cap front design (after 3 years and alot of jigs) but designing the top rail and post bottoms, and lower lattice has me stumped.

Any ideas welcome!

Jeff; Bring a couple of pitures to our next woodworking meting and you might get a discussion going among some of the guys.

Nice job.

Karson – Good idea – in this case a group could design it better than an stumped individual, as an exception from the rule that “a camel was a horse designed by a committee.” :)

It looks great even without the finish. Like the shells, seahorse and the plants around it. Great job!

Brrr showering outside! Looks good as it is, but those final finishing details always seem to take a long time.

Well an outdoor shower can be a slow build.

White is pvc board, rest is cedar, mahogany and even blue-Plastidip for the royal blue. The Seaglass stars were done by an artist in Lewes Delaware and I inserted them here (instead of their usual purpose as a Christmas tree ornament ). Sun comes thru them with plexiglass back and top, and for at night i am soldering and waterproofing some (auto bulbs) LEDs 12v.
