Project numero uno!

This is my first build from Ana’s plans. First I had to build the work bench in order to have something sturdy to work on. Thanks to home depot it was very inexpensive to build. I didn’t use wood conditioner and now I wish I had. I also used a 2 in 1 stain and seal. In retrospect would have used stain and then a varnish. All and all I’m very happy with the look and the stability. Even though I built it in my garage while its 94 degrees here in Florida I still enjoyed the project.
