YellaWood® Outdoor Building Project Plans

Build a Giant Toppling Tower

Estimated Cost: $$$$


Total: 2 hours

Untitled document

The simple construction of this outdoor activity makes it an ideal weekend or even after-work project.

The set consists of just one type of part cut many times: a 2x4 cut at 10 ½". This makes for one of the quickest YellaWood® projects yet, and allows for little reason not to give it a go.

After the 48 pieces are cut, sanded and sealed, arrange them in alternating rows of three and you're ready to start playing.

Before you get started, please read our info on safety, fasteners and building tips.

Before building, please consult our Terms of Use.
