    • Fantastic work! This looks really rustic and very stylish. It looks like it's the perfect design for the look of the room. And thanks for including the process shots- those are always great to see. Did you follow a set of plans?

    • Thanks so much! I didn't follow any plans on this one---I wanted to come up with a design that would pack flat for my sister's car (she lives in a different state and picked it up during a visit), and after sketching out some ideas, this is what I came up with!

    • Out of curiosity: are projects automatically entered into the monthly contest?
      By jvid, on January 8, 2018

    • Jvid, yes every project that is uploaded is automatically entered in the contest and then nation members are able to vote for the projects they believe should win!

    • What a huge detailed build! Did you also build the table and benches we see in that first picture?
      By RYOBI NATION, on January 9, 2018

    • I did! After taking apart the formwork from the garden, I used some of the 2x12s and 2x4s to put together the table and benches one afternoon before some guests came over for dinner. The beauty of the used, concrete-stained wood was that I could build the table very quickly and get away with the "rustic" look.

    • The garden is gorgeous! The bench is amazing! I am not sure which is more jaw dropping, the concrete forms or the table? Absolutely awesome. Thank you for sharing!

    • Awesome build. The concrete work looks beautiful. It sure makes the back yard.

    • Wow that turned out so awesome and the shot at dusk makes a person just want to sit and enjoy the evening. Thanks for sharing.
