Have fun .

So while posting the above post the other night the baby stated crying so i didnt get around to finishing it

Any how i didn't just do i cut and leave it
I cut all the bottom rails and the uprights and started tacking them together the only one being the problem was the 78 degree angle but after a bit of grinding it was grand
