This was my first solo wood project I have done without my dad, now that I have moved across the country. It was a great intro to woodworking, and I definitely learned a TON. I did this with a generic "tool set" I got for christmas a few years ago, all battery powered.
Note to other beginners:
- Circular saws that are battery powered may not have the juice to cut through those 2x8's, which led me to have some uneven cuts.
- Careful with the wood glue. If it leaks out between the boards it can be a B**** to clean up and will cause some issues with staining down the road.
Long story short: Love this project, super happy with the turnout even with some imperfections! Has me bit by the DIY/Woodworking bug!
With extra supplies I needed to get besides drill/circular saw: $120ish
