Found the 2x6's in the alley at work.
2x4's, some screws, and stain, from work...
Some heavy hardware from a piece of furniture that was left here.
And cross bracing from some old trim in the garage.

An ounce or so of sweat later....

I got some 4×4's.....at work, gonna build a few pedestal stands for the bigger ones so I can spread stuff out a bit...
It's a little packed now!

I busted off that one piece on the back...
Gotta glue it back on!

Off the sills....off the ground...

Now I need some good trees!

Thanks!

Adair...you should follow me! Lol!

I got that top one eye high...

I think I'll see one more bigger one this year...and a half dozen or so pedestals.

Sorce, I don't understand most of your posts. I only read a minority of the threads here, but it seems you post on every thread I ever read. I infer from this that you must post on virtually every thread.

So, if I were to follow you, I'd get notified of every post you make. And that would be overwhelming.

I apologize for being a bit interrogative, but Sorce, why are there baseballs in the small cooler instead of beer?
@sorce, Yeah, why is that, hmmm. I noticed it too but @Arcto, ya beat me to it. That no longer a cooler, but a box instead?
Nice score and nice handyman work, Sorce. Definitaly need some nice trees to take ones eyes off the new well crafted shelving, including big ones fer counterbalances on the bottom shelf.

Good deal and nice work including cleaning the place out, you had a handful going there!

@sorce - Damn bro, wish I had your energy. Nice construction, you even rounded off the corners of the feet. My construction skill is limited to piling cinder blocks and setting a board on it.

Nice yard, I can see you are still ecstatic over being out of that cramped apartment. Nice job on the yard. Next I have to have you help with mine. LOL

It looks like there might be a chance the kids next door will accidentally knock some of the trees down, just for old times' sake.

Well done Sorce! I can see you will have more motivation in this hobby.
One question: why do you let the bench facing to the neighbor? Is there any particular reason? sunlight direction?
Thanks
