Last November I started building a teeter totter for the girls.
I enlisted the help of my brother, Alan. I was prego at the time and didn’t trust my brain with math. I shouldn’t trust my brain with math when non-prego either. But he is a mechanical engineer so I knew he could make sure it didn’t turn out all wonky.
We got to the part where we need to put the bolt in the fulcrum, and I realized I had the wrong size paddle bit. So we jimmy rigged up something for the meantime and called it quits.
And just last week I got the right sized bits for the fulcrum and the handle bars, and finished ‘er up.
And then stained it to protect it from the elements.
Did you know it’s really hard to find a teeter totter on a playground anymore?
I bought 2 2×4’s and the rest of the wood was reclaimed.
Thanks for looking!
