They're all different, their design can be as artistic or as basic as you wish. Just like folk!

TBH I think its gonna be on the back burner for a while-my 'workshop' is so full of toys, I mean tools; I can hardly move. Having a new large outdoor one built in the spring-cant come soon enough. But hey ho, more time to come up with killer stuff for 'rolling out the barrel.' Eh?
