Default Mud Kitchen

Yeh, that's what I said when SWMBOJr asked me to make one for the kidlets.
Let Duckduckgo be your friend...

I had a doz. or so 6' WR Cedar fence-boards sitting in a stack for at least the last five years; perfect!
No plan, no pictures. Just the finished product undergoing field testing.
Top is 28" high x 48' long x x 24" deep. Vertical splash is another 24" higher.

Now if they can't cook something up there they aren't really trying. Other than maybe height, what's the difference from the adult version? Looks great, now I need to add that to the wife's list. Really gotta start looking at these emails when she's busy elsewhere.........

Very nice...can't get any better than kids to do the field testing...if there's any improvement to be made, they will find it. But I certainly can't see any...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Dan I'll bet that ends up as a potting bench when the kids out grow it.

Great to see kids handling dirt instead of smart phones. In the world of child development, your project gets an A+ for developing fine motor skills, their imaginations, ability to visualize and foundation concepts with which to think. Really cool!

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Heh...that was kind of my reaction when I saw the mess all over it, that the kids made. Then reality hit me...it's a MUD kitchen, just hose it off!


ps I am so happy to see the end of those fence boards. Every day I had to look at the pile. It was under an overhang and stickered but still...

Home Hardware* makes a Linseed Oil/Tung based exterior stain/finish; quite nice to work with. Two coats, and we'll see how that stands up.

Well done Dan. I like WRC as well and I see the kids are going to have a blast with it.
