I want to start by letting everyone know I am a 68 year old grandma with a bad wrist. I bought this pattern thinking I would get hubby to do it, but that didn’t work out. So, I decided to look at the pattern, thinking if I purchased the supples he might become more motivated. As I read the directions, I started to think maybe I could do it. I bought the hand cutting tools and started work when he was out of town for a few days. The more I worked on it, the more confident I became. I cheated a little and used hubbys’s cordless sliding miter saw on the 1/2” thick pieces, but I cut everything else by hand. I did need his help nailing the wheels on, but everything else I did all by myself. Thanks so much for a simple, easy to make pattern that gives good quick results!! I loved it. What a great pattern!
This is a nicely done DIY project pattern for the experienced woodworking crafter. For me, it was more challenging than I had expected due to my inexperience with the various tools required. Still, a fun project and would be a great project with older kids who could help on sanding and gluing, etc. Just factor in the cost of the tools if you don't already have them.
