Quote:Goings have been slow, but I am making progress now, I hit some snags and made some twists and turns in my initial design, working out some of those took quite some time...I picked up three sheets of 18"x4' planked pine sheets. These are narrow pine boards glued together to make larger sheets, they are finished sanded and look nice, though they are on the heavy side. I cut 12" off of three, then glued the scrap up to make a 4th 3' section. I do love being frugal. Some sweating with a plane and some sanding, and the franken-piece will work fine.
