So, my wife REALLY wants one of these:


She has visions of our son helping her in the kitchen as she helped her mom. Given our son't attention span and dislike of being still, I am doubtful that it will work. But I like to make her happy. However, ~$175 is more than a I want to pay for something like this. Especially since we're watching the budget these days like so many people. So I'm going to build her one from scratch.

However, since I haven't ever seen one in person, I'm trying to figure a few things out. If someone here has one of these and you've got a few minutes for a favor, I would really appreciate helping me with these two questions.

1. How thick is the wood that the tower is made of? It looks like somewhere between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch. If I had to guess, I would guess in between those two at 5/8. But that's just a guess. If you could take a second to measure, that would really help me.

2. What does the underside of the platform look like? I can't figure out how the platform attaches to the height adjustment notches. It appears that there are just two 1 inch dowels running across. But I'd love to be able to see for myself. If there is any way that you could take a photo of the underside of the platform, that would be amazing.

Thanks in advance!
