Best of luck. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
This is excellent advice methinks. I am planning on a 5 gallon bucket as a drainage reservoir, or something similar. The stand will get a wipe on urethane of some kind. I honestly haven't settled on a product yet but water and uv protection will be high up on my list of must haves.
