My Cold Frame

I like to start my own plants from seed.  Here in Texas you really don't need a cold frame unless you are trying to start seeds in the winter months and even then it's probably not necessary.   But when you need a place to put all those starter pots this seems to fit the bill.  I found the plans (not very good ones but plans no matter) on the internet here:  http://gardenplansfree.com/furniture/cold-frame-building-plans/ and here:http://onestrawrob.com/?p=1769 and here: http://www.wrcla.org/pdf/coldfr.pdf and again here:  http://www.howtospecialist.com/garden/greenhouse/how-to-build-a-propagation-bench/
All these plans really leave you to your own imagination on most of the construction so this project challenged my wood working skills a tad bit.
At this point I have the project complete except for the window pane lid and the hinge that will hold the lid up in different positions (I have to figure that one out still).
I thought I'd show you my project so you can see that you too can build it.  I didn't even require any help hold things together at any point.  This is a great thing because hubby really isn't into working with wood.   I will post finished pictures soon so you can see this little beauty in action.
