This was my first woodworking project. It's based off of a Shanty2Chic design that I saw on Ana White's site. It was labeled an Advanced project, so naturally I made it my first. It's made of select pine, joined with Gorilla Glue and Kreg Pocket Screws. Gillia chose the stain color and did the staining. It was a surprise gift for her.
The Big Gray Bench
This was the second thing I built, I think. It all gets a bit blurry. There were so many things. Once again, I mostly followed a plan, and then went my own way. The plans that I based this off of were again Ana White plans. That means pocket screws and home center pine. Again, I diverged from the plans to suit my own nefarious purposes.
