I hate waste, see one of my earlier posts about recycing scrap wood. Well I had a big pile af short pieces of 4x2 that I rescued from a skip -- so what to do?
Plans here ( though I didn't stick to them)
http://www.play-scapes.com/wp-content/uploads/2012...
So I had a load of short pieces of 4x2 (or 2x4 if you are American!) I set up 12 pieces (12 inches/30cm long in a 6 ft circle (I held in place with 6inch nails into the ground)
Offset next set and then carried on
After about 8 layers started to taper in (11 inch then 10 inch --9---8 etc
Topped off with a platform --Goats seem to be happy!! a sunshade for summer with adequate ventilation
Also could be used for human "kids" as a climbing frame

Materials I used for this project:

  • 4x2   (skips/dumpsters)
  • 3inch/75mm nails   (mitre 10)
