See-saw for kids

Submitted by Michael M on Mon, 05/27/2013 - 09:01

Took no time at all - 1 hour start to finish on a rainy day. Built it for the little kids but kids came out of the "woodwork" from all over the neighbourhood. Easy, fun and cheap! May add some old rubber bike tires beneath the seats to protect the wood that comes in contact with the ground. Didn't bother with a padded seat - an off-cut of plywood, with sanded edges works just fine and will be easy to replace if it starts to weather.
