Pictured here is a 4 day project I undertook for my moms yard. I used con common 2×6 and 4×4 redwood for the whole construction. I took every piece apart and sanded them with 120 grit sandpaper. I then applied a cabot semi transparent stain that is weather/water proof. I assembled the whole thing on site, and laid 6 inch concrete footings and screwed the legs into strong ties. Overall the project was fun and ended with a great result! Also pictured is my 2 year old lab named blu, who like me always practices shop safety!
