I set out happily about 6 months ago to turn my invention into a reality. It started when I was building a playhouse for my kids and I saw them having so much fun just playing with the scraps of wood.
I remembered the feeling of adventure and empowerment I felt as a child when I was nailing boards together building my own fort. After a few weeks of thought on this I had an aha moment and within a couple hour one morning made the first prototypes:
These first pieces were made from rough sawn Ponderosa Pine.I made them myself using a jigsaw, table saw and a cordless drill. The fit was very tight and needed to be loosened a bit but other then that they worked just about how I thought. The only problem was that my kids wanted more.
