About: I'm a programmer from Siberia and the leatherworking is my hobby. I think the everyone deserves really high-quality goods and I'm trying to make them)

Hello

I would say sorry for my English it's foreign for me. If you will find mistakes or typos please let me know))

Step 1: Prepare Base for Our Busy Board

In the attachment you could find the scheme for laser cutting from 3 mm and 6 mm plywood.

We have only these plywood and for taking 12 mm we should cement it from several pieces.

Step 2: Cement the Plywood

After cementing we should take more massive details and completed labyrinth.

List for cementing:

  • main base
  • 5 doors
  • 5 second (small) part of doors
  • labyrinth
  • clamping for the dragon

Step 3: Choose the Palette

Chose one base color and 1-2 colors for elements of the busy board

Step 4: Polishing

All details should be polished before dyeing.

Step 5: Polish the Cogwheel

Scour the edge of cogwheels. We've found really simple way)))

Step 6: Dyeing

I think we need not any comments)

Step 7: Labyrinth Keeper

Complete the figure of dragon for labyrinth like on the photos.

Note that it should be assembled on the labyrinth base because you can't move him inside after assembling.

Step 8: Combine Cogwheels

Put cogwheels on the pin with spacers and add the fixtures on the edges.

Step 9: Analyse Places

Make temporary alignment.

Step 10: Complete the Doors

Assemble all 5 doors with furniture and fasten them to their places. The second (small) parts of the doors clamp on the glue but prepare holes in the base for fastening from backside.

Step 11: Socket and Plug

Use the cord instead of the wire it will be more comfortable for the child. Use the hot glue for fixation in the plug.

Step 12: ​Mark and Drill

Mark and drill holes for all remaining elements by using your previous layout.

Step 13: Assembling

Some elements (for example some buttons) does not have holes for fastening to the board. Drill them and fasten the back side of the element to the board. For assembling with the face side of the element use the hot glue.

Step 14: More Assembling

For cord clumping use nodes and hot glue (it's strong and fast))).

Step 15: Again Assembling

The labyrinth should be cemented and fastened from back side. For this prepare hols in the base board before cementing.

Step 16: Assembling One More Time

Fasten all that can be fastened or it can be dangerous or the child.

Step 17: Velcro and Zip

Nail the velcro and zip by using prepared hols. Note that the nail should be safety!!!

Step 18: Backside Fastening

Fasten all wooden elements that have glue clamping only from the backside of our board.

Step 19: Backside

Just dye it.

We've finished it! )))

    I too have made one of these. Here is a picture from 5 long (but so short) years ago. I can't believe how fast they grow! I wanted to show you my picture to say how much better yours is! Well thought out. I wish I would have seen this earlier. I would have voted for you. Good luck!

    I wouldn't add to that an electrick wall socket with a plug beacause a child will learn to touch it and one day he/she may think to check the real one in the wall. But I really love the whole idea of that board.

    Thanks a lot.
    We've used it because child already had checked the real. The socket on the busy board is more comfortable for him and trying the real socket is not so interested after.
