Line Mar Match Box Construction 004 - Bench
004 - Bench
I found a Line Mar Match Box Construction Set from the 1930s, complete and with instructions. The box claimed the set made 100 different toys. I decided to test that claim -- one toy at a time. You can read all the posts for the Line Mar construction project at 100 Toys.
Of the 100 toys this set can build, the first twenty all seem to involve just stacking various metal shapes on top of each other. This bench was one of the easier of the toys in that category to make. It helped that the whole thing was low-slung, which made it more stable than the single and two-legged tables.
