Very cool and inventive, and looks like a lot of fun!

Does the top line up with the bottom boxes, frames and all?

JP,

I didn't use a jig to router out the area to hold the top bars, so they are not perfectly aligned.  However, I did measure with a meticulous eye, so they are close.  I did use a jig to put the boxes together, so they are near perfectly aligned.

Rex, thanks man!  Nice to hear from you Hawk.  Georgia Boy, it requires some patience, determination, oh and of course some time.  It also helps to have a mentor.  Without all four, I never would have finished it.  I want to build another, but will have to wait till next winter.

Cost wasn't much, used rough cut 1" stock.  Beetle kill pine was pretty cheap at the time of purchase.  Amount of time?  A lot.  I didn't exactly keep track, but there were many parts that had to be cut with precision so it took quite a bit of time to set things up, cut parts, assemble, etc.  Did it for the enjoyment, not efficiency.
