Instructables maker David Weiberg, aka , created a Star Trek bridge playset for his son. This is the greatest form of parenting I always love, Take sometime out of your busy schedule and create something for your kids, is the best thing you can do for them.
Weiberg in his own words:
This project started when I found my old Star Trek TOS playmates figures. I gave them to my eight year old son who had become a fan of the old show. He began building simple cardboard play pieces. Inspired by the clean wooden design of some of his other toys I set out to design and create a modular play set that he could use to assemble various rooms aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. I wanted a set that could break down and store easily. I tried to use scrap materials where I could. The bridge was the biggest challenge so I started there.
