  • How did your creation differ?
    I’m using power tools. I’m using some left over wood from a project and it may not match the type of wood actually used (which is not in the museum listing).
  • What would you do different next time?
    Whoa, this wood is not pine and is very hard to cut.
  • Anything else you’d like to tell us?
    Made for the Gross (dozen dozen) challenge. Not sure I’ll get 12 done though.
