Her Tool Belt

Hi, I am Amy and I love tools! Growing up on a farm, fixing everything was just part of life. I learned early that with the right tools, you can build and fix anything that you put your mind to. Woodworking has always been my favorite hobby, but with homeownership I have picked up a lot of other handyman skills. Check out more DIY handyman tutorials, craft patterns and furniture plans on http://www.hertoolbelt.com/


    • This looks wonderful and I love herringbone patterns. The tutorial is easy to understand. Great job

    • I printed the sleigh pattern but there is no printable pattern for the Cut Diagram for the bottom of the sleigh?
      By Lucy22, on December 13, 2016
      • Sorry the bottom and front are in step 3 "Also cut 1 front 16 ½” x 10” and 1 bottom 16 ½” x 25 ½”."
        By Her Tool Belt, on December 13, 2016

    • Me and my dad made this Sleigh for my mom for Christmas 2017. She loved it.........I took old chair springs to make bells for the decor for the front of Sleigh.

      • Hi, my saw is a single bevel. I know after i cut the end that i flup board upside down to the right to get cuts in opposite direction. How do you do this when cutting ends in same direction. Im so confused
        By Ashleym428, on April 6, 2020

    • Hi, I am trying to make the snaller one. My mitre saw is only a single bevel. I know that to make the cuts in opposite direction; I cut the end and then flip it upside down to the right. Im so confused on how to position wood to get ends in the same direction. I cut the end and kept the same side facing up and just turned the end around to the right. Is that correct or do I flip it upside down to the left? Or do I just keep board where its at and just slide it down and cut. Im so confused on this . I hope you understand what im saying. I really need your help.Thank you.

    • I love this! Where did you get the crates from?
      By farjojo, on January 6, 2015

    • Amazing! What a great way to keep organized in a family space with small children. Mine would crush those cute little stools... :) Love the combo of white paint and stained top.
      By kimmatReinvented, on January 8, 2015

    • This is a really awesome looking project! Could you share some more details about the crates though?
      By aggressorblue, on January 16, 2015

    • Hello! The crates are Large Wooden Crates 18" x 12.5" x 9.5" (Home Depot sku #203153338)

    • This is one beautiful table, do you think it could be modified to to be smaller for my home :)
      By SoCraftySewCreative, on February 1, 2015

    • I love this
      By Lydialugo, on February 7, 2015

    • I would love to make this project but am planning to super downsize in the near future.. This would be perfect for Xtra storage but will only be limited to a max of 300 sf of total living space. How would you propose to cut the width mainly, and depth of drawers.

    • Hours of fun and imaginative play ... a play set extraordinaire.
      By janicehintze, on June 3, 2015

    • What was the approximate price for all materials used?
      By BAMAWATERFOWL, on June 19, 2015

    • @bamawaterfowl I spent about $1300, all of the materials came from Home Depot.
      By Her Tool Belt, on July 10, 2015

    • The materials list doesn't specify, but is the lumber pressure treated? Or are you relying on the paint to withstand the weather? If so, how's your current play structure holding up? Also, it looks awesome! Great job!
      By Brian5177, on February 21, 2017

    • This thing is amazing! So I have a question, what exactly are the optional pieces for and what do you lose of you chose not to do the optional steps? I am referring to what is in the PDF not below. Thanks
      By mgomon, on August 9, 2017

    • you did a great job. i think we are going to replicate this for our kids.
      By Team Saefkow, on February 9, 2018

    • i just noticed your blueprints are not working :( can this be fixed?
      By Team Saefkow, on February 9, 2018
      • @Team Saefkow they have been fixed. Thanks for letting us know!
        By RYOBI NATION, on February 9, 2018
      • the link is gone :( and i cant get the picture for the material list to load. keeps saying error.
        By Team Saefkow, on February 11, 2018
      • Can you not see where it says "View Project PDF" under the project description?
        By RYOBI NATION, on February 12, 2018
      • im sorry it was my browser, was not letting me open the PDF. thanks for replying to quickly.
        By Team Saefkow, on February 13, 2018
      • Glad you got it figured out!
        By RYOBI NATION, on February 13, 2018

    • I want to add that I did this nearly the same as pictured above and I am not a carpenter, just handy :-) It came out awesome! I'd post pics but not allowed with comments.
      By mgomon, on February 9, 2018
      • Awesome! You can always upload your own project if you'd like to show the RYOBI Nation community!
        By RYOBI NATION, on February 9, 2018

    • Help me out here...I am not seeing where all 11 4x4s will be used?  I am only counting 6.  I am having my fence put in and was hoping to have them actually set the posts into the ground to make it extra sturdy.  Is that overkill?
      By EbbaRobb, on April 24, 2018
      • Even though it's two years too late, to clarify for anyone else who may have the same question - the materials list includes what's needed for the playhouse AND swing set:  6 4x4x8s are used for the clubhouse/playhouse, 4 4x4x8s and 1 4x4x10 are used for the swing set.
        By krashtd78, on May 31, 2020

    • Does anyone know the height of the entire set? Ground to peak. Trying to find a set that is 10ft tall or less because of a crazy HOA rule.
      By Ddrake0005, on July 6, 2018

    • Thanks for sharing the design, I am putting the finishing touches on one in my back yard.  I had one lesson learned to add and a couple of mods that went well.  For the lesson learned, be mindful of your carriage bolt placement. A few steps after making the frame you will need to install the floor.  Four of my bolts partially interfered with the floor boards, I ended up notching the floor boards.  Other than that, you can add an additional 2X4 to the floor, it helps keep rain out of the bottom.  At the kids request, I added a floor to the bottom and enclosed the rear of the structure with a wall.  Finally, I opted for a corrugated metal roof.

    • Can you tell me where you bought the 1 hour DIY swing kit?
