I’m going to write about this project a little differently. It’s the largest DIY project we’ve tackled so far, both in size and difficulty. There are a lot of things we’re going to have to figure out along the way and new wood skills we will have to learn. Thus, I thought it’d be fun to just blog about each step as we go along. Well, that’s my story and it’s sticking to me, as William always used to say. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that it’s a project John and I are both excited about, I’m overly anxious to tell everyone about it, and I simply can’t wait until we’re done to write about it.
Here are the materials we’ve collected so far. Again, most of the stuff we’re using is reclaimed lumber that was donated to our cause by the guys at http://articulatemotion.com/ , in Phoenix, or found on Craig’s List. Since Craig’s list hasn’t shown me good lumber in a couple of weeks, I did go out and buy some inexpensive 4 x 4s at Home Depot. You’ll also notice in the picture some found items we plan to incorporate into the design.
