This would make a great stocking stuffer. EDIT: I have fixed the wobbling problem. Check out tomorrows Second Slice to find out what I did wrong and how I fixed it.

Thin Material

11-11-2012 07:48 PM by bsilverman | 2 comments »

I have been salvaging wood from my job sites. The latest was some cedar cut offs, so decided to cut them into very thin slabs of about 1/4 and see what i could make. So far i have made a tray to contain silver ware in the silverware drawer and a large tray for the other utensils in that drawer and a pencil box. I am thinking of making larger items so have been joining the pieces which measure about 2 1/2 X 15 X 1/4” to make larger pc of about 15 X 15 X 1/4. Joining these pc’s h...

Desert Storm Tank Carrier #5: Truck is complete....entire project is now assembled!

10-20-2012 04:42 AM by DigBaddy | 2 comments »

Finished up assembly on this project. Had a blast and learned a lot along the way. The wheels are bought..I don’t own a lathe and have no desire to try to make them myself. As for the paint, I am going to mix my own military colors for this project using craft paint I have laying around. I post finished pics when I have them. Here are the latest photos to hold you over.

Desert Storm Tank Carrier #3: Completed Assembly on tank and trailer

10-18-2012 01:38 PM by DigBaddy | 2 comments »

I am making really good progress on this project. Finished assembling and gluing the tank and trailer two nights ago. Last night I got a good start on the tractor. Once all are built, then it is on to paint. I have been very fortunate to have enough scrap wood to make this project. The only cost incurred has been the cost of the plans. Toymaker Press really puts out some nice toy plans.

Desert Storm Tank Carrier #2: Tank progress

Made some progress on the tank. Adding wheels and gluing the turret. Yes it rotates. Since I am painting this for my customer I can use up some of the scrap wood I have laying around. I hope to get the trailer done today as well since the Packer game is on this evening.

Rocking Horse from Grizzly Plan #6: The Bonding of Rider and Horse plus Glimpse of the Steed's Future

10-08-2012 09:07 PM by Lee Barker | 7 comments »

It’s Emily’s third birthday, and there’s a party, and stuff, and cupcakes, and 5 grandparents, and the camera. These are in chronological order. 1. Checking the hooves. 2. Discussing saddle styles. 3. A few fatherly tips. (The pen on his ear was to record any apt quotations of the moment.) Mom smiles from the margin of the pasture. 4. “Climb aboard,” a classic unintentional pun. 5. Gramma gets involved. 6. Little B...
