Made from Pine for young athletes, these stands are used for practicing… handstands.
Again, for the kindergarten, this time they needed to replace some old yard benches and I went for the easy solution of the 5 board bench concept. Not a complicated project yet time consuming as I had to make four of these.
All parts are made of Pine glued boards held together with heavy duty long metal screws that will last long after the benches will become firewood.
The movie shows the process of building our playhouse which is made of pine wood. It was built in our home garden not far from where it was finally located.
How do you get the kids out of the shower before they empty the hot water boiler? Well, you can try to educate them (good luck), punish them (“no shower one month”) or build a small 555 circuit to generate high frequency alarm 4-5 minutes after operating it by a toggle switch.
The alarm sounds well under the water and around the house so if you hear it too long you know the kid is testing your nerves again…
The kids hate it of course so after a while they start getting use to the time limit and promise to get out of the shower quickly if you let them do it “without the beep”.
