When your kids think you can make toys, you are in trouble. This is a pretty simple design, that my inexperience made far more complicated as I progressed. Its framed in Poplar with pocket hole joints, then covered in 1/4” plywood. There is also some Ambrosia Maple scrap used for braces, the gate, and the interior trim around the windows. It dawned on my about 2/3 of the way through that I could have skipped the framing process by using 1/2” to 3/4” plywood! The light is made from a ping pong ball with led Christmas lights stuffed in a hole in the top. Its mounted on a piece of red oak from her Great-Grandfather’s barn in middle TN. Its around 100 yrs old. Someday she’ll understand.
