Looking through here one day I saw someone had built a similar tower. I figured I could build it for way less than the 200 bucks that Little People were charging on Amazon. The plywood was just laying around. I built a jig out of MDF and used a spiral bit and guide to cut it out. A flush cut bit brought it down to the actual size. I gave it a sanding down to ~300 grit and gave it a few coats of spray shellac. My daughter loves it and other than the fact it is big in our kitchen we love it too. The next one will be made to collapse. Thanks for looking.
