Dillan is our youngest granddaughter. Because she has an older sister and two older girl cousins, she gets a lot of hand me downs. That is very good and she loves them. Her Papa and I decided to build something just for her. She loves to climb and is quite the daredevil.
I had seen a rocking boat that could be reversed as a staircase. We decided to put our scrapes from the wood shop to work. I drew out a design we both liked, then we lit a fire in the wood stove in the shop and spent several days working together to build her rocking boat.
After construction, I painted sections of the wood, then finished the whole thing with an acrylic outdoor finish.
Dillan is still a bit young to understand the rocking motion, but she loves playing on the stairs and hiding under the “bridge”
