This was my first project other than making garden boxes. It went really well. I built it with some friends and we had it assembled in a weekend. Stained it the next weekend. We used a Ryobi Miter Saw.
We used pine. For assembly, we decided to invert the middle truss for fun. We also fell in love with the Kreg Jig and decided to Kreg Jig the 2x6's together to make a flatter surface and incase I move it would make it easier to detach to carry down 3 flights of stairs. Did two coats of wood conditioner and stained with a light coat of Onyx water based wood stain. We decided to keep the legs and not have wheels.
Stain and wood moisturizer $10-$12 each.
