These DIY plans & instructions include step by step instructions to build this learning tower. All the necessary information about materials, tools and sizes are included. The wood sizes used in these plans are for standard wood 1-in × 3-in and 1-in × 4-in (nominal). Also you can choose between three heights for the tower: 35″, 36″ and 37″. Choose the height that is the closest to the height of your counter top.

I think a little practice with tools and wood is recommended. But this design does not have any difficult joints. The trickiest part of this project is the assembly I’d say. To make sure all (that needs to be) is perpendicular etc..

— Always use the learning tower under supervision of an adult! —
