Project (URL):

Time to Complete: 4 weekends (I have a full time job during week.)

Total Cost: ~200.00 with screws, rags, stain, sandpaper, etc….

Finishing Details:
I used the suggested finishing materials in the plans – Carrington stain and matte finish Poly. I did 3 coats of Poly on top and 2 coats on base. I used dowels to join the 4×4 posts together instead of Kreg screws because I don’t have a Kreg HD jig. I go into detail how I did this in the video.
