Rustic X Bench

Submitted by LiMa87 on Mon, 10/28/2013 - 14:26

This was my first build with minimal help from my husband. I'm unsure how long it took to build since I worked on it periodically and forget how much I spent on the wood since this took place several months ago. When I started this project, I did not have a pocket hole jig and since then have learned how invaluable that tool is. It's not perfectly square but it's not as noticeable sitting on carpet as it would be on hard flooring.

Probably a harder first-time project to start with but overall I'm happy with the outcome and looking forward to my next project.
