John, I would be interested in buying one that size. Is it by chance possible to have it broken down where it can be reassembled once arrived? That might eliminate the bulkiness of shipping. Let me know...that's an awesome design! Seriously.
If I wanted to build run of the mill crap then it's pretty easy. I will make stuff to break down. Part of the reason it's very hard with stuff like this you don't see any metal/fasteners anywhere for aesthetic reasons and safety. It's not meant to come apart.

They are very nice, when I first seen some of the stuff I wasn't aware that John was selling them.
John is this going to be a new business adventure? I hope so, I'd buy some of those, not kidding either. Nothing beats good quality craftmanship.
Make a page photo list of the items you'll sell.
Everything nice I do is original one of a kind stuff so there is no catalogue. :) This is the only thing not sold right now. You design it. I'll build it.

You definitely do not build run of the mill crap. That's for sure. And yea, I notice there wasn't any fasteners.
Oh well, that's why I asked if it came like partially assemble,
Because something like that fully built wouldn't be easy to ship. Wish you didn't live in next country over. I go to Toronto often, to visit relatives, through port huron then to
Canada.
But I sure do admire that play gym. Hmmm, I do have design ideas. I'll get back to you on that.

If I know its going to have to be shipped then I would design it so and probably have to ship it in more than one box. I punched in the numbers for shipping. This would be $1200 to ship. (OMG) Twice what the thing is worth.

Lol.....ouch!! Thought it might be a few pretty pennies but wow!. Had to ship some things to my daughter in England,
Geez, shipping definitely isn't as cheap as it used to be.

@JLcribber can you teach me how to make those great ladder bridges?
Stainless steel wire cable. (Picture hanging wire at the hard ware store) aluminum crimps to make the loops on each end. Spend a couple hours cutting and drilling all the little tree branches. Steering them together like a necklace. Loop and crimp the ends and you’re done.

Fantastic! Thank you so much! That's just what Monaco needs, sturdy ladder/bridges to get around with more confidence.
