In search of instructions for something like this: http://small-wonders.blogspot.com/2012/09/we-have-been-sensing-autumns-arrival.html  Or, at least more photos to help in building one.  Thanks!

I'm looking specifically for the hinged frames shown at the bottom of the post.  I think Mykea may have had them (but I live in the US).  It looks like a fairly simple project.  We have playstands, but I'd like an option for outside that's easier to move. winky.gif

Sorry, I followed your first link and it went to nothing, lol.  But I remember seeing on a blog some place the one you just posted.  They are like a clothes horse or indoor hedge, right?  Here is a picture of one that seems to be made without a hinge, but you could just put hinge on it

I'm not sure you would need plans to build this... just a drill and screws and wood and hinge and some careful measuring with a stiff ruler:

 

6 vertical supports all the same height, sanded smooth

if you have a drill, drill 3 holes in each support.  the screw in the dowels

then add hinge.

 

Or this is how you can make a dowel joint:

You only have to do steps three four and five, which require a drill bit the same size as the dowel.
