I followed the basic plans but added a couple 12x2” metal supports for each breadboard. This was a must. I used Douglas fir for the entire project from Home Depot.
My 2 kids helped me put a few screws in, otherwise I did this myself. The wife really loved it and was a bit surprised coming back from her facial spot on Valentines Day. It turned out better than I could have hoped, especially considering this was my first real woodworking build.
Great plans and nuggets of advice from everyone else made this really fun and not so scary!
