    That looks great! I'd love to see more pictures if you have them from when you made it.

    Added dimensions and more photos just recently, great to build to last for daughters and honouray granddaughters!

    Plans are long lost, can give you exact dimensions before house moves to next generation of honourary grand daughters, I tried to make sure it all fit on one sheet of plywood, worked on it in secret (hard to do with inquesitive children), Veikko As a "Professional Tinkerer" may projects in the works to fulfill retirement, check out my website especially repurposing items.

    Just posted more photos and dimensions, hope that helps.
