Well I’ve been out of the game for a little over two years now due to the Army. Got home on post-deployment leave and I had been having the itch to make some saw dust. Built this for our home and a surprise for the wife. Feels good to dust off the ol tools and get back at it even if it was just for a short period of time!

Looks great! I made one of these before, but I like the design of yours better. Did you use a plan?

Thanks for posting.

Awesome job Matt. Same here, I built one years ago and painted the inside red, always did regret it. I like your natural look.
