After the birth of her son, this one time farm girl from Wisconsin became nostalgic for the toys from her past: simple, natural toys that would inspire creativity and imaginative play, made from materials that wouldn’t stick around in a landfill for thousands of years. After years of silver smithing, throwing pottery and drawing with pen and ink, Amber finally found her medium in wood. Using sustainab...

DEAL of the day... maybe even the month/year - Lowes, Freud Router set $99

2089 days ago by AaronK | 11 comments » the last 12-days deal. I did order it, figuring on the good return policy at lowes, in case there is something horrible about this thing.

Various Projects #5: Mom's Bookcase Part 2: There's Wood Here Now

2089 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 4 comments »

Apparently, my dear old Mom is more impatient than I am! Why do I say this? Simple. We both happen to be off today, and she announces to me this morning that she’d like for us to go a pick up the Poplar for her bookcase this morning.

2089 days ago by tsmith | 7 comments »

Dad passed several years ago now but left me a box he had made when a kid and gave to his mom. It is in disrepair with glue joints failing (@ 50 years old).

2089 days ago by Andraxia | 15 comments »

Being the only driver in the house, I am the one who gets the joy of hauling a trailer load of rubbish to the local tip. I had backed up the trailer to the hopper (who said a woman cant reverse a trailer????) and a young (mid 20s) man was unloading his rubbish into the hopper from his boot (trunk) of his car. I was chatting to him whilst I spaded the junk into the hopper. He was clearing out his granddads shed who had just gone into a nursing home. He was about to throw a box of stuff i...
