Make sure you use a screw driver shaped like an allen wrench

This started last year as a 5'x5' platform built the same way for a pop-up. I needed it to be light and easy to move/build. I hope to have it at its new home today. Here it is just framed out

Thanks! No I do not because I just blacked it out but here is one from another blind I built. During bow season I keep a hanging feeder about 25 yards away under a pecan tree. i could drop the glass down and bow hunt out of the door

I thought ikea only came in beige/off white. I'd buy one of those camo ones like yours for sure bubba. Cool blind plus transportation problems solved.

How do you open your windows, and keep them open? Always looking for new and better ideas for blinds!
