Pictured is a set of table and chairs that my husband and I created with the help of this book. My daughter has loved this table and chair set and has used it almost every day from age 15 months to now (3 years).
The designs in this book are all constructed entirely from recycled cardboard that you would get from the grocery store. The designs incorporate the colorful pictures and typography that feature on fruit and vegetable boxes. The result is fun and modern.
Tools you need include: utility knife, cutting mat, cordless drill, glue and ruler or T-square. We live in Tokyo, and easily constructed the projects in our living room.
Your children will love the cardboard furniture you lovingly create with the help of this book, and you can recycle the furniture when you're done with it!
