024. Diving board

Tempt some dust bunnies to have a little fun by placing this mini diving board on the edge of a shelf or your desk. Your competitive dust bunnies should know that this diving board is hardly regulation and the fulcrum is locked in.

Plans for this diving board are provided in two different scales: 1:20.3 and 7/8″. (1:20.3 is the smaller of the two.) Take your pick. (If you haven’t already, check out our Deck chair and Deck umbrella projects!)

Dimensions: 5-7/8″ long; 2″ wide; 2-1/2″ high
