It's not perfect but I'm delighted with it. Luckily, because it's massive!

You did it! That is AMAZING! You must be so proud of yourself. It looks a picture.

Thanks, I am so pleased-I've never made anything before & followed a simple tutorial off the web. Need to make a smaller one now that I can put on a sloping bank. Such a confidence boost to have something homemade smile

Fantastic! Can I ask what tutorial you used? smile

Cheers all smile

I used this one & then cut a square of timber to go on top & bought a round post top thing, (you can see how technical I am ;) but I screwed 4 screws for the square which made it go a bit lopsided so will do just 2 for my next one.

Also, I missed the half inch of my side bits so cut them a bit shorter but it didn't really matter.

Have cut & drilled all the pieces for the next one & about to start painting as it's a faff to paint it when put together so hoping this will be a bit easier. Also it's hard to do screwing on top after as it's tall!
