|FUN, FUNCTIONAL AND AFFORDABLE
CHILDREN'S PROJECTS CAN BE ALL THESE THINGS and more--if you build them yourself. All of these designs can be put together using easily obtained materials and common handyman's tools, and include clear diagrams that lead you every step of the way.
Most of these projects can be completed in a weekend or less by anyone with the most basic carpentry skills.
The kids can even be involved in certain aspects of construction.
Project examples: simple tree hut, four sided playhouse, treasure chest, toy cannon and much more.
Each project includes a design, plan, materials list, step-by-step directions and carefully executed illustrations. Many of the projects can be built in less than a day and require only basic hand tools.
In addition to line drawings, most projects contain a section of helpful building tips.
Custom designs and plans available upon request.
