Pecan boards, milled from a downed tree at the farm. I sanded, 80 grit, th
e rough cut boards.... no planing or further sanding. Though stickered wh
en air dried, the boards warped pretty badly and I didn't feel like muscli
ng these heavy boards more than I did, fo rbeter smoothness. They are smoo

It's presently disassembled and loaded for delivery, tomorrow. Seat is ke
yed to the sides. The back is notched and secured with 3" deck screws.
The left-right "wings" may be removed or reduced in size. Once assembled,
it's wider than I realized, when initially building it, laying on the grou
nd & on saw horses.
Seat is 6' wide.
Have 9 more hooks, so depending on the final size, placing hooks on the win
gs or sides is an option. Nice size hooks, too.
Feet are beveled, shorter, on the backside by 1/4", so that it leans toward
the wall, when installed.

Installed the coat rack this weekend. Looks pretty good installed, too.
Not as big-looking, for the space, as I had thought it would be, but we may
still reduce the width.... We'll live with it for a while, decide, later.
I ordered 6 more hooks, should be in this week, so maybe this weekend I c
an get those installed.
Note the small dining table on the right, seats 4. This is why we need a
larger dining table. I have a plan for a ER cedar trestle table. Soft w
ood, but we'll see how it goes. I have these slabs to work with, and plent
y other cedar boards milled from 14, or so, hurricane-downed trees: https:
Yep, someone has to do them. It's hard to steer away from too large of pr
ojects, sometimes. Thanks Leon.

Originally, the bathroom was a quick build, assembly.... at the least, some
privacy for the girls, not much other reasonable planning. In that small

as per randomly installed facilities), i.e., seemingly typical hit-or-miss
