About the Designer:
Always wanted to tackle a wood working project and something like this has been in the works for a long time. I’m an aerostructures painter so I stay busy with working lots of overtime and trying to spend as much time as I can with my family so this project took me many late nights and weekends to complete. I’m thankful for all the advice I was giving for any questions I had about this project and for my family and friends that had to listen to countless hours of how excited I was during the whole project. I’m by no means a carpenter but I think I’ve learned a few new skills along the way and look forward to making many more projects like this one!
