Busy summer, but I got a few hours in the shop and built this storage unit for my daughter’s birthday.
It’s a maple frame with 5 vertical bungee cords. It holds a surprising number of stuffed animals. My wife got this idea from an online shop that makes and sells these and I came up with this version.
Designed in sketchup. Measures 60”x22”x11” and is made of maple. Joinery is simple. 3” screws into 3/4” oak dowel plugs so I can screw into “end grain”
The bungee cords are regular 4 foot cords from Lowes (4’ stretched) attached with eye bolts. Finished with Waterlox satin (kid safe) and vinyl “Pet Shop” stickers. Screwed into the wall in case the kids climb onto/into it.
Took about 4 hours to build and fill with stuffed animals.
