Building Change: Build at Home Project - Picnic Tables and/or Park Bench

A unique family building experience that cultivates relationships and community connections. 

Building Change:  Build at home Picnic Table Project provides your family with an opportunity to volunteer together, build authentic relationships while constructing valuable community placemaking items to enhance neighborhood or backyard spaces, and support the Richmond Community ToolBank -  a WIN, WIN, WIN for all! If you are looking for a DIY project for the whole family to experience and enjoy, this is the project for you!

What will you build?  You will be building a Picnic Table that measures 72" long and stands 31" tall. The assembled Picnic Table will then be donated to a local nonprofit to support their mission. You can choose the nonprofit to receive the donated table or we can provide assistance on who receives the table. 

Cost: $200 per Picnic Table or $100 for a Park Bench with Back. The cost covers the lumber and hardware needed for the build, printed instructions, a list of tools to complete the build, access to a live-streaming build to assist with the build, tool tutorial videos, and build tutorial videos. If you do not have the tools for the job, we will provide access to those tools as well. 

Not super handy? No worries, you will be provided step-by-step instructions and instructional videos on how to build the placemaking items. These instructions and videos will guide your group through safe and efficient tool use while giving you the freedom to solve problems and build cool stuff that supports community-identified needs.
