Wood Rainbow Rocker

Use plywood and box of food coloring to make a marvelous ‘play furniture’.
We were looking for a Christmas gift for the little Anya. We wanted a functional gift which will can be used for many years. I found a brilliant handmade one, but this project is very time-consuming, unfortunately, is too late to grab all tools but if I find more time I will make it for sure.

Becky - mother of two youngsters and the owner of the ‘Ramblings From the Burbs’ came up with a super useful and practical design. She showed us the detailed explanation on how to build the Wood Rainbow Rocker. Using her step-by-step instructions, we can make a similar rocker on your own. This project is brilliant and I love everything about it. It has a beautiful form and it’s so functional. This ‘play furniture’ with lots of different ways to enjoy is perfect for children in any age. True, it is not suitable for beginners but why not ask someone for help with difficult woody part!

Have fun with this project and show us your results. Share pics with other Handimaniacs in comments below the post.

    Hi! So I finally convinced my husband to make this and now I can’t get to her tutorial? Any idea what’s up?
