Very nice, even though my girls are years away from having kids ( I mean at least I hope so). This may come in handy some day. Did you build it from plans or is it your own design?

Thanks for sharing the post.

I had a commercially-made version almost identical to this when my kids were younger. Nice job!

Thanks for the kind comments. I built this from plans I got from Woodcraft.com and modified it a little. It looks like they now have a different version, check it out. http://www.woodcraftplans.com/u936.htm

Good idea to think ahead and gain two lifetimes of use, its better than recycling
