Our first build

Submitted by artkdz on Sun, 04/10/2011 - 11:53

Actually built this last Summer, but just now getting around to posting it up.  Made it with Cypress, if I remember correctly, which is cheaper than Teak or other woods, but it's hard to stain because of the natural oils, and tends to flake a bit.  Didn't come out too badly, though, if I do say so myself.  Here's my little girl helping to show it off.
