Not much, but it looks way better than the green treated 4×4 that was there. Built as two L’s with the Kreg Jig then joined around the existing post this took all of 35 minutes. I have had comments from the neighbors, so I guess it was worth it.

thanks for looking

Looks good, great way to take advantage of the nice weather and lack of snow to do some outside projects.

That is very nice looking. I’m glad to see “useful” projects on this site. Just because it’s not a cabinet or rocker doesn’t mean in can’t be worth looking! You done good.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words and degoose, it’s nice to be back. I’ll post some pics of the new shop soon. After the divorce I was able to get into a new house last year and put up a 28’ x 34’ shop in the back yard.

Nice job. Id like to be able to say, way to “spruce” up the neighborhood. But First Class posting fits better!
