My Old Man Stand my Dad & I have used for many years cost too much to replicate....but it is extremely nice
5 x 7 x 6'3" inside. Each wall is bolted onto floor and ceiling so as to repair easier when needed.

I just need a couple more warm spots as options.

American Elm dies from Dutch elm disease before it gets large typically. The Elms your referring to are Siberian Elms.

Dutch Elm Disease (DED) is a fungus. The worm tracks are from insect larvae that show up after the tree is weakened by the DED.

The old barn lumber would be okay for the sides and maybe the top if you paint it really good as far as the poles I would go green treat just for safety reasons.

I will try to go for a walk tomorrow and get pictures. I try to build each Side on the shop floor with flat and level ground. That helps with putting it up and I can twist it with ratchet straps to make it square.


I have nothing clever to put here.
