Kitchen Helper

Submitted by 67GTOenvy on Fri, 08/19/2011 - 10:12

The kitchen helper tower was a fast and easy build, the modification of 16 hinges to allow the tower to fold flat was actually the most time consuming part of the build. I added clear skateboard grip tape to the platform floor. I found the hinges and griptape on ebay and most of the wood was scrap leftover from other projects.

"Classic Red" spray paint & spray laquer for the tower frame, I stamped flowers & bugs on the platform under the griptape & clear laquered the bare sides & underside.

First off, your website is awesome and I love how you give such great directions. However, on everything I pull up all this information is on it. On this one it is not, can you help me? I really want to build this for my daughter.

Thanks so much.

How did you build it so it can be folded up?.  Would you explain it or post a picture?
