First off, sorry if the pics aren’t oriented properly; couldn’t figure out how to do that. They’re correct on my phone!! Any advice on fixing this would be most appreciated.
Not perfect, but I’m pleased with the outcome and I learned a lot.
Used Fine Woodworking plans, 5/4 & 4/4 cypress and Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane (3 coats).
1) planers make a huge difference in the milling process (bought one after I’d already started assembling so I didn’t use it for this project)
2) ensure your project, once assembled, can fit through your doors! Almost had to disassemble to get it out of basement.
3) enjoy the process
