Paul at Digital Misery decided to start tackling some Geek Dad projects, and this past weekend constructed a great version of the Slip ‘n Slide featured in the book with his family. He documented the whole process, step-by-step, and the outcome is pretty impressive!

Says Paul:

We decided to start working through some of the projects and this weekend we picked the “Best Slip ‘n Slide Ever” project from the Geek Dad book.  Basically it involves constructing a super home-made water slide that rivals anything you can find in the stores.  I decided to document our build progress and include our successes and failures for the benefit of others.

Thanks, Paul! And great pictures. Happy slidin’.
