Default Little Guy Can Help Now

Youngest grandson has started the "I want to help" stage but can't reach anything taller than a chipmonk so I combined a couple ideas from others and came up with this. Posts and rails are 5/4 x 4. Rest of the frame is 1x2 and 1x3s. Platforms are just lumberyard pine. The height can be adjusted in 4" increments. I used select grade to help prevent any weakness knots may have. Couple rattle cans of Krylon and some felt pads on the bottom. Don't think I had to use the 5/4. 1" is what all the plans called for. Daughter saw it today and now I have to make another one for our place. That's ok - I can improve and change a couple things. And I didn't use the CNC on anything!!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Nice John! I've got 7 of those little people running around here at times. They love playing in Granny's bubbles. 🙂 I have to hold them up to the sink to get a handful. Great project!

Very nice, John! But the CNC needs to get some involvement - carve their names on the rails or something.

They will quickly use it to get into mischief. But what a neat project.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
