Build A Playground With Ted’s Woodworking

Now it is easy to learn how to build your dream playground with Ted’s Woodworking. Learn how to design and build all of the equipment you need. This course includes hours upon hours of online video instruction that provide in-depth coverage of every step along the way as Ted guides you step by step through each project.

Playgrounds are good for kids and good for parents. For kids, they get the chance to get fresh air, stay active, and socialize with friends. For parents, it gives them an opportunity to spend time with their families. One of the best things you can do for your family is to give them a place to come together. Playgrounds are one of those places.

There are many brick-and-mortar stores and online retailers that sell pre-made playgrounds, but these sets can be expensive. Additionally, there are many services online that claim to offer building instructions that are “foolproof,” but oftentimes, these plans are written by professionals who use jargon and other industry terms.

Are you looking for step-by-step instructions that clearly outline each stage of the building process? Look no further than Ted’s Woodworking. We offer over 16,000 plans that we have spent the last 25 years compiling. When building a playground for your children, you want to give it a personal touch. Our plans allow you to do just that. With our plans, assembling a playground will feel like working alongside a master woodworker.

Why Build Something Yourself?

You know your children better than anybody else. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to anything. When you buy a playground building kit online, these structures are only designed to last for a few years. Once your children hit a certain age, you’ll get front row seats to watching your beloved project gather dust.

Building your own playground allows you to modify the equipment pieces as your kids get older or their interests change.

By building something with the help of Ted’s Woodworking, you can:

Make Modifications as Needed

Kids grow up. It’s a fact of life. A playground that may suit your child’s needs at five years old may not necessarily be right for them when they are ten. The team at Ted’s Woodworking knows this. We want our projects to suit your ever-evolving family’s needs. Our plans allow you to make small modifications that can extend the lifetime of your playground.

For instance, suppose that you are building a clubhouse for your kids. However, you may find that many clubhouses are specially designed for younger children. Yet, with Ted Woodworking’s plans, you can make certain changes as needed. With the DWG and CAD software that we include in your package, you can increase the height and width of the structure­–– as well as add other features. Our collection of projects is designed with you and your family’s needs in mind.

Implement Your Own Designs

A well-built playground can actually raise your property’s value. With this information in mind, you likely want to have your playground match certain aspects of your home. Ted’s Woodworking makes this all possible. We want to give you the opportunity to take control of your project. We even encourage you to give it your own special touch!

Some ways that you can “spice up” your child’s playground include:

  • Using weather-resistant paint
  • Sealing the wood against the elements (such as rain and snow)
  • Applying decoupage to the exterior or interior
  • Adding certain aspects, such as veneer 

The best part about building something with your own two hands is that it’s 100% yours. You can make your playground look exactly how you want it––and Ted’s Woodworking allows you to do just that.

Develop Lifelong Woodworking Skills

Many of the things that you will learn with Ted’s Woodworking are things that can apply to the other projects you make in the future. Even after completing your first project, you will see a noticeable difference in how your hands and mind work together. Our instructions lay everything out for you. Soon, you will be able to assemble projects and just use our instructions as a reference.  

We are excited to see what you come up with when you use our project guide.

Why Use Wood?

Wood is one of the most versatile materials that you can work with. Some people see a plank of wood as a piece of debris; we see it as a clean slate, full of possibilities. There are many reasons why wood can serve your project-related needs. For one thing, most wood is sustainably sourced. As a renewable resource, you can construct your projects with the peace of mind that you are doing your part to protect the environment.

Secondly, wood is easily malleable. You don’t need to be a welder or work with dangerous tools to get wood to do what you want. All you need is a circular saw, some nails, a vision, and a free weekend. 

Since wood is a versatile and easily malleable, it is considered as the best material for building various playground equipment pieces.

For the purposes of building a wooden playground, wood is also one of the safer elements that you can use. Let’s compare a wooden playground with a metal playground. Over time, not only does metal rust, but it does not adapt well to the elements. Additionally, children can hit their heads against a metal frame or get cut by pieces of rust.

Wood is tops in our book. We believe that if it comes from nature, it belongs in nature. Wood gives you the opportunity to make whatever you want with a basic skill set. In Ted’s Woodworking plans, you will learn all about how wood can help you build playgrounds, furniture, benches, and more.
