A couple of quick projects.

Fist is a tether ball stand I made with and for my daughter. Originally the pole was cemented in to the ground, but over the winter it loosened up and would not stand up straight. I did not want to mess with digging another hole and replanting the lawn in the heat we’ve been having, so this was the next best solution.

Second is a pull out shelf in the kitchen. In the cupboard where we keep our pans, there was a small shelf with the plastic shelf pins. The pins broke the other day, so I decided to do a little upgrading.

Both items were made with “scraps” I had laying around.

Davion, Interesting solution to the Tether-Ball problem. Does it keep it in place pretty well? I just remember having one that we really beat up as a kid.
The pan draw should be a great improvement, makes it much easier to get stuff out and use more of the cabinet.

clieb,

it works pretty well with the “sand bag” jugs, we have a couple more they can place on if they get overly rambunchaus.
I figure if starts to loosen up or get some wobble to it I can add some more bracing, it’s just some ply and 2 by4s.

With all due respect, it looks hazardout for kids to play around—all it takes is one trip, or one game of “King of the Mountain”.
