Not sure what to do for National Patio Day?


Not sure what to do for National Patio Day?

Meet Annabelle, who wanted to do something that was cost effective, yet fun for all involved. She decided to make a DIY Giant Tumbling Tower with timber from Stratco. The team at Stratco helped her select the correct timber as well as cut it all up ready for her event. Everyone at Annabelle’s party had a ball and absolutely loved the idea.

Annabelle's DIY Giant Tumbling Tower

How to make your own DIY Giant Tumbling Tower

To create the DIY Giant Tumbling Tower 3 blocks need to be placed next to each other, then another layer of 3 blocks but placed on a further 90 degrees. Continue to complete this process until you run out of blocks.

Annabelle decided to use pine to keep the cost down, however Hardwood options are available for a nicer finish. Just ask the Stratco staff for advice based on available stock. 

The length of each piece needs to be 3 times the width to produce a sqaure tower. Annabelle used 90x45mm Pine which comes in 6m lengths. With a 90mm length, Annabelle needed the lengths to be 270mm (90mm x 3). From 3 6m lengths, 66 90x45x220mm pieces were made creating a 22 layer tumbling tower.

The pine edges will then need to be sanded, either using sandpaper or doing it by hand, or a powered sander. See the sanding options here.

The last thing Annabelle purchased was a 70L Storage Tub to store the pine in. See available storage options here.
