to build it, i first drew out the design onto paper.
i then cut out that template and taped it onto my cutting board two times.
then i cut out the wo pieces with a coping saw, although you can use a band or jig saw
after that i nailed the two pieces to together.
then i cut off the ends of the nails with a hacksaw and ground them smooth with file
painting is optional, as you can see i did not paint mine
