I see the end of summer coming soon and I haven’t built anything since spring.
My wife, through the internet was able to locate information about my family that I didn’t know. She was able to find family members that I never knew existed. So I wanted to make her something that she would use and a way to say thank you. This is what I came up with. Simple but sturdy design, pressure treated wood so after a few weeks of drying out I will give it a coat of stain and spar varnish before the snow flies. A little landscaping to finish around it. I’m thinking grape vines for next summers harvest.
