Tucker McBride

Return to a time when a boy could be a boy; when life was more clear from the top branch of a tree; when a kid could trade anger and disappointment for action and adventure; when the whole neighborhood was his playground; and the sloppy kiss from a dog could make everything right.

Pull it Together

If Tucker McBride's Grandpop had made this bunch of boards into something, it would have been a usable object - always usable. This image is of a collapsed storage box - to store things in his workshop, the attic, or to organize some supplies at the church when needed. The idea came from a friend, Ralph Daily. The storage box is in its own collapsed condition, perfect for sliding under a bed or stashing in a closet when not in use.

   

This picture shows the box as it's being pulled upright and straightened.

The bottom is then inserted.


There -you have a wooden storage box.


  • Think about what you might store in the collapsible box. Where might you store the box when it's not in use? 
  • Or - What might you have built with the wooden slats if a storage container isn't necessary?


Brainstorm - have fun.
