Sorry, don't have my nerd to English dictionary with me ATM. I'LL just take you at your word that it's for something else.

So Tice removed a deck at his job site, which is Armistead Maupin's former home. In his genius he recognized it to be Brazilian Ipe that was only screwed down from one side. The new owner eventually a

Just put up some shelves and cabinets in the shop space preparing for making things again!

The Cherry is lighter than the speakers, but will darken quickly next to the window. I have a vented front plate coming for the top space. The cooling fan sits in that space, and is really quiet.

There is no gate at the moment. Going to have the 1x1 cedar posts horizontal with narrow slits on the frame made by the 1x4 frame I think. Just trying to figure out how to frame it out for the cleanest look. 
 

Will be replacing the baby gate to keep my dogs from eating the neighbors.

They need to be very snug. No slack at all.

Even then, you may find it racks.

Even if it doesn't immediately rack, it probably will over time. 

Like Steve suggested originally, I'd recommend a diagonal or x-brace for stiffness.  Either that or gusset the corners significantly.

Going to figure out how to set the wood cutter thingee to 45 degree angle and make corner braces like shown with leftover 1x1 boards.  I think that will look better than a single cross piece.

After getting all the frame and horizontal pieces chopped up, I decided the circular saw was not the right tool for this job when I need fancy cuts for the back, so I got a cheap other wood cutty thing.

Pretty much done with everything but staining, as it is too cold.  Kasia did not like the box brace on the back so I have shorter corner braces on each corner.  Hoping the 13 1.5x1.5 cross bars and the 4 14”ish 1.5x1.5 corner brace boards will be enough to keep it square.
