Hello everyone! I hope you have all had a good weekend. Remember several posts back, I mentioned that Dave had a project we were working on. It is finished. Here’s how went.
2 inch thick sawmill wood. Rough cut.
Lots of cutting and lots of sanding. Sawmill lumber is more challenging to work with than other lumber but so worth it.
Here is one side of it put together.
We hung it up in the garage to put the tung oil on it. You can see some of the beautiful colors starting to come out in the wood.
Here it is put together. I don’t think I mentioned it but the lumber is poplar wood. It is so pretty. I said this was Bates style because it is huge. All the kids can play in it at one time. They love it! I think it took us 7 weekends to finish this but I’m not sure. It was a super fun project to work on and I’m so glad I got to help!
