Step 1: Why PlayWood?

I was always worried because I was afraid my baby boy could tumble in the few seconds I was doing something else. So I start thinking about a project I could realize by myself to let him play in a safe space.

Considered all those things and all my needs, I decided to create a play box made of wood, where he can play and develop his creativity in the safest way possible.

Thanks to the PlayWood assembly system, I created this box in few, simple steps and I think that’s awesome! I started my project early in the morning and as he woke up he had a brand new play box, where he can learn and use all his toys taking me away some anxiety.

Step 2: What Do I Need?

This is one of the most simple DIY projects I created thanks to the PlayWood Connectors.

In order to build this box I used: - 4 wooden panels with a thickness between 16 and 19 cm ( ¾” and ⅞”) and for instance, I decided to create my project with boards made of fir layers wood - 8 PlayWood Connectors 90°

Step 3: How Do I Build It?

The project is very simple to assemble: I joint all the wooden boards with two connectors, one on the top and one on the bottom per each side.

I think my kid is super lucky because he now has a place where he can freely play and once he’ll grow up we can re-arrange the materials and build something different or enlarge the existing box, on the basis of our future needs.

Step 4: What Are You Waiting For?

I am glad I had the chance to develop this DIY project: it was easy, cheap and fast. What’s best for a new mum?
