When I was a kid, we had zero cool wood pieces and hardware thingies floating around my house, because neither of my parents woodworked.
Fast forward a few hundred years, and I’m married to the king of woodworking. Seriously, there’s a gold mine of random metal things and wood pieces in our basement, and I wasn’t about to let them sit there unloved.
One lovely day, we grabbed the wood glue, the hammer, a bunch of wood pieces, and some metal bits and bobs, and headed outside for a robot toy DIY party. Woo! Robots 4-evah!
This project is really pretty self-explanatory, but I will give you this tip: If there is a certain metal object you would like to hammer into one of your wood pieces, do it before you glue it to another piece, or you’ll have a sliding glue wood block mess on your hands.
Maybe another good idea is to lay out some wax paper or kraft paper so you aren’t dripping glue all over the floor.
It’s also totally optional, but making loud robot noises the whole time you are making these is recommended.
