My first project! I wanted it to be something simple that I could do in a weekend and easy so I didn’t get discouraged.

My 2 year old niece needed a stool for brushing her teeth and she loves animals. I wanted to make something cute and functional. It is made from popular. I realized she might use it as a tray when eating so I painted it with non-toxic paint and sealed it with a clear spray so it can be wiped with a wet cloth.

That looks like a fun project and I’m sure your niece loves it. I’d venture to guess that she’s even named it. Nice job on the painting too.

And so the addiction begins…great looking turtle. You need to buy a new tool to celebrate.

Very cool project. Of course, being a terrapin myself, I’m partial to turtles.

I like the way you think Jagwah!

Using the plans Home Depot had posted in their lumber department a few years back?

This was from a book, I did not know home depot had a similar item. Was it part of the kids workshops?

No. This one was a promotional plan in their lumber department put out by Georgia-Pacific in an attempt to sell more lumber.
