if you want a picture you can PM me
Love to see a pic and was it $75 for both or just one?

What a great post! We are so going to have to make one of these. I get nervous putting DD up on the bar/counter all the time, but she has to be part of the action!

Someone mentioned an off-brand version of the LT at Walmart. I searched their site but couldn't find it. Anyone know what it's called or have a link?
Thanks.

Wow those are all fantastic, I'd love to have a learning tower but they're sooo expensive. Didn't think we could make our own but some of the simpler designs look do-able.

Hi,

 

The Learning Tower your Dad made looks fabulous!  I like it much better than many of the DIY plans I have found anywhere online.  Does your Dad have plans that he made that can be posted?

 I have actually been using three kitchen chairs with backs. I block my son in my all sides, so long as it is on an area rug, the chairs do not slide.

The tower is great though!! Kudos to you and the builder.

I saw plans for one on this website once. http://ana-white.com/ I have not made any of her stuff but I've perused her site and think she's awesome. we ended up getting one secondhand. good luck!!

Small world. We just printed it and DH went over to ask grandpa if Santa could fit one on his sleigh ;-).
