I saw this on Facebook and had to make one. Now I have made 3 to fulfil some requests. It is a bit more complicated than it looks with all the half lap joints, but I would consider this a wonderful skill builder if you want to, well… build your skill at half lap joints. It is also nice because you can make it by ripping down a 2×4 so with lumber prices the way they are it is a nice little inexpensive project.

Side note, I stay on the FB group because I occasionally get a nice idea from it… buy they way people treat each other makes me really appreciate the LJ community.

Best to all and stay well.

Very nice. I would imagine that it can get quite confusing on which side to cut the half-lap. Perhaps you could give the pieces as gifts and see who can solve the puzzle!
