I have never attempted a wood working project before. But your plans were easy to follow and very thorough. I haven’t been this proud of an accomplishment since I graduated from college. I bought all the materials I needed at Home Depot with the exception of the copper rivets which came from one of the sources you recommended. Thank you for providing plans at such a reasonable price. I now have a family heirloom that my son will pass on to his son or daughter!
