Summer is finally here and I'll do anything to keep my kids busy outside so today I'm sharing this diy balance board made from scrap wood. I can't take full credit for this project, I found my inspiration here, but I did write up plans for my version below.
I made quite a few of these for birthday gifts last week and a few to keep for my kids. A little paint to dazzle up the plywood top.
I definitely recommend using this balance board outside or on a rug/carpeted surface.
2 - 2x4 @ 10” (rockers)
1 – 2x3 @ 13” (rocker support)
1 – ¾” plywood @ 13” x 19”
3” & 2” wood screws
Step 1: Using a jigsaw cut arched rocker shape. Make 2.
Predrill countersunk holes for screws at center.
Step 2: Attach rockers to center support using glue and 3” countersunk screws.
Step 3: Apply glue and layout rocker piece onto plywood top centering on all sides.
Step 4: Carefully flip over and attach top using 2” countersunk screws.
Sand well and paint as desired.
