Sheila Armstrong Long gave a talk on the 1-2-3 Design program.  She provided examples of projects that can involve children in the construction and assembly.  Christin Dittrich, 10, demonstrates how easy it is to assemble a 1-2-3 Design chair.  Easy to cut patterns laid out on 3/4 inch plywood produce easily assembled chairs, table, etc.
