But this is what he built to use as a desk instead:
Note the green hand weights on each side to stabilize the top half. He actually pointed those out to me and said they were there "so it wouldn't wiggle around" when he was sitting at his new desk.
A few weeks ago, I found him building the biggest bird bath I'd ever seen. He had taken apart his (already broken) basketball goal, turned the bottom part upside down,
and used landscaping stones (Landscaping? What is landscaping??) to stabilize the "bird bath."
"Hmmm...Now what else does it need?"
