As a Carpenter, IMO that bus represents what a Entry level Carpenter can do.

Those are small, thin pieces of wood. Not much skill required to build something like that.

If you make a mistake, toss the small piece and start over. Not much lost.

Start cutting 4x8 sheets of nice wood and making it fit around everything with angled compound miter cuts at ever corner. Then you can say the builder was a good Carpenter.

This is why tongue and groove 1x4's and 1x6's are so popular here. It's easy to install for a entry level DIY'er, with basic tools, and little skill.

I didn't post that for those of you who have read my previous posts. I post stuff like that for the new members that need to know the down sides of using wood.
