    • Awesome idea and a great solution for charging. You have a real eye for unique stains! What kind did you use for this piece?

    • I tend to use a lot of Minwax water based stains and finishes. People like the pop of the decorator colors while low VOCs and water cleanup make it easier in my small work space. Every now and then, I'll mix some custom colors at home to get the right shade as was done with the farmhouse table I'll be posting later when the benches are finished.

    • This is a perfect solution for any urban area. What a great idea to integrate storage and a drain system! What wood would you recommend using for anyone thinking about building one of these?

    • I used 2x2s for the skeleton, which added unnecessary weight in the end. I would use 1x2s next time and try to find some low cost 1/2" for the decorative framing to further lighten it.

    • Wow! That must be one happy hedgehog! This is a fantastic design and beautifully executed. The finish color is awesome! Did you create the plans yourself?

      • Thank you! He does seem quite happy with it. I couldn't quite find any enclosures that would fit the application just right, so yes I did end up making my own plans.

    • You did an amazing job! Wouldn't be surprised to find some copy-cats down the road. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    • This turned out great! You could use this inside or outside to add a warm, welcoming element to the space. Very nice work!
