Wood Trug - Kit Form

Submitted by rosiejane on Tue, 10/29/2013 - 01:25

I made these back in February. I came across this project on Jamie's site (http://thatsmyletter.blogspot.com.au/2012/10/t-is-for-trug-naked-versio…) earlier in the year and thought that it would make a fantastic birthday gift for my 6 year old nephew. I gave it to him in kit form complete with nails and glue so that he could assemble it himself. I predrilled the nail holes. Of course I then had to make one for my own 6 year old so that they could build them together. I adjusted the size to accommodate some tools my dad had given them for Christmas. Time indicated includes personalisation time.
I've had a bit of practice painting names since this project. Each time I get better at it.
