Legally blind father builds coffee table for his daughter using a special tree

The finished project - a wonderful reminder of childhood, as well as a great project completed by a father and daughter.

Climbing trees is a part of childhood I’ll always miss. It was difficult, and sometimes dangerous, but it was always fun. There was one tree I always loved climbing. No matter how many different times or ways I would climb it, it never got old or boring.

A redditor called crazy_plant_lady, had to say goodbye to her childhood climbing tree. Her father, who is legally blind, wanted to make something special for her using wood from the tree. So, they put their heads together, planned and executed this awesome project.
