DON'T JUST SIT AROUND. SIT AROUND ON SOMETHING YOU MADE!

Okay, these are strange times. But the whole virus thing does provide us time to sit and think. And catch up on "I'll do it some day" things.  And spend some spirit-lifting time outside. And maybe use our hands a bit. Which makes the LEOPOLD BENCH the just-about-perfect project. Full instruction in the PROJECT section. Stay safe. Be kind. Reach out.

LEOPOLD BENCH: 6 boards, 60 minutes, 1 comfortable bench

This is one of the simplest furniture projects you'll ever find. All you need are a drill, circular saw (or jigsaw) a few boards and a handful of exterior screws. If you have doubts about your wherewithal, see page 4. Great for the garden or anywhere in the great outdoors. 

CIRCUS TRAIN FOR STUFFIES

A fun-to-build project for those 10,000 stuffed animals your kid has accumulated over the years. Stack 'em, connect 'em, wheel 'em around.
