Make your own scooter parking!
My garage is a big mess come summer time. I had a crazy idea to organize it this spring and give everything its own place and then maybe…. Just maybe the kids would put things where they belong.
I saw this cool idea on Pinterest for scooter parking, and I had to give it a shot.
Here is what I did…
I am not going to go into great details on what I did, not cut this piece exactly 27.25 inches long or anything, just a bunch of pictures and some basic guidelines.
First, the only reason this works is the bottom of your average scooter is flat. Basically I am cutting some holes for the wheels to go through so the rest of the scooter can lay flat.
I used 1"x3"x8' wood pieces I bought 4 to make both these parking spots… .OK I really bought 3 then had to go back to the store midway through the work to buy another one.
For my bigger parking spot I cut the pieces 42" long for the side and 26" for the width.
Here's how I arranged them.
I used 1-1/4" screws to attach it all together.
I drilled and countersunk everything.
Here it is built together.
I had some piece of plywood laying around that were big enough, so I outlined it and cut a piece to the correct size.
Drilled and countersunk.
Cut the holes for the wheels.
I first measured and cut the back wheel for each scooter, then I put the scooter on the board with the back wheel in the hole, so I could better mark the front wheel. Then I cut the hole for the front wheel.
And they all fit.
Here is both the parking spots I made.
I sanded them down
I painted them white. OK my wife painted them white, but I helped!
Then we unleashed the children with a bunch of acrylic paint.
And now every scooter has a place!
