    My 14 mo grand daughter loves to look out the back window to look at the birds and squirills at the bird feeder. Problem is that we have to pick her up and hold her as she is too little to reach the window. I did this little project today. Hope she likes it.:D

  6. I did similar when my munchkins were 4 and 5 years old. It was to big and heavy for them to move around easily but they worked at it and got it to wherever they needed it. I painted it all bright primary colors, each surface a different color so it would appeal to them. Wife wasn't to happy about the clash in her decor but it tickled their giggle. My storage was a space below the bottom step, yours is better, wish I had thought of that.

    Nice job! I see she's a keyboard player, too. That's a good move. Keyboard players never help carry equipment in or out. They always disappear when that happens.

    Heh! I tried to fit the keyboard in there but it was a no go. I see many projects coming up as she grows. It will be fun! She will be here tomorrow and I will take some pics of her trying it out. Wish we could post videos on here.

    that is cool. I enjoy small wood projects.

    have you thought about pocket hole screw joints? that way you don't have plugs on the surface making clean-up a pain along with other issues.
    here is a pic of one of my latest projects showing how they work, kind of.

    Very nice veiwing pech/toy box.

    The Kreg fasteners are great to work with and they make filler plugs to glue in and sand flush.
