Grandpa Project

Made a chair/step stool for my grandson...his feet dangle a little bit when he sits on it, but it gets him up high enough to brush his teeth.

Great little project, and I am sure he will use it for years to come!

Nice!

His feet will touch the floor soon enough.  They grow up so fast!

Thanks for looking! My grandpa made one for each of us when we were kids...I recall using it a lot.

This grandpa stuff is kind of fun...I just have to be careful I don’t use up all the really cool projects on the first one. Chairs they should all get, but you can see in the picture part of the rocking airplane I made him last year. One of those per household is probably enough. I’ll have to come up with something else for the next one. Wink

If you have granddaughters there is always different stuff to build for them.  Doll furniture (beds, stables, doll tables and chairs, etc.) comes to mind.  There is also the doll house, some of which are pretty darn complex to build.

Yup...watching out for that. Wink

Built a doll canopy bed and a couple other odds and ends for my youngest daughter (now 17), but I didn’t acquire my family until the girls were 8, 18, and 21, so I’m a little inexperienced with girl stuff til they get to American Girl doll age.

Nice job

DonJuvet posted a neat chair project unfortunately the pics are gone and I failed in my attempt to get a copy of the plans.

It was a combination rocking chair (one way up) and sliding board (other way up).

Arlin or someone else may have pics for the ones that they built.
