Thank you. Built it in my dads garage on leave...I had no tools but a small skill saw, a drill, hand saw with miter box, and a hammer. Next project is building me a shop with some tools ASAP!

First, thanks for your service!!!!
Second, I like the design. I have absolutely no creativity and am always impressed with what others can do.

Looks great...shows that you don't need a garage full of tools to build something really nice (although I'm sure it does make it faster )

Are you planning on staining the wood or just putting a clearcoat on it?
