This was a quick project my wife requested for our son. She found the plan online at Ana-White.com (I think it’s called the little helper tower). It’s just something designed to help little ones get more on your level while you’re cooking or doing dishes in the kitchen. Our son loves it and it’s designed to grow with them. It has four different height settings for the platform. Our son is 27 months and the highest setting is still fine for him so I see us getting a lot of life out of this project.
It is built out of cheap pine boards from home depot that I milled square. The finish is Kilz2 primer followed by three coats of standard glidden latex paint. I applied the finish with my harbor freight hvlp cup gun and it went on great. I had thought about putting some poly or shellac on it to help the finish hold up but I wasn’t sure what the best thing to use was so I didn’t do anything extra.
This was quick to build and turned out to be really useful. If you have young kids or know someone that does I’m sure they would love one of these.
