I did do one thing though, which I couldn't share until today :) It was a gift for someone, so I didn't want her to see it before her Baby Shower!
It was kind of a simple build, except for the bars. I also got to use my Ryobi Airstrike automatic nailer for the first time. Love. It. I love it. It's amazing. I might go find things to nail together just because. It's super quiet, and light enough to hold with one hand.
|2 of 1x3x6, 1 of 1x2x6. Cut them|
to make 20" and 10" pieces
|Get 7 dowels. Cut them in half to|
make 14 total.
|Make each frame, only drilling all|
the way through the centre frame.
|Get your Hubby to help stain :)|
|Then add the dowels - I |
used glue and staples.
|Here's them all together|
before adding the top
The last thing to do is put four triangles on the inner corners to act as support for the base (a thin piece of wood to keep the animals in :P)
