"Automaton" #6: It's .........Aliveeeee!!!!!!!

01-18-2012 06:37 AM by mpounders | 21 comments »

It works! That doesn’t always happen, for me! I still have a little tweaking to do on one cam, but this is pretty much how it will operate. I’ll be able to start on the painting and finishing next, which shouldn’t be too bad. Of course, one of the things that slows me down, is all the “testing” I just have to do! So, as a thank you to those that have followed my blog, I decided to post a little preview of it in action. Thanks for eeveryone’s encourag...

Speed Woodworking #1: Simple Toy Box with Wheels

01-11-2012 03:53 PM by Peter Alkema | 2 comments »

I have recently been taking video of my projects as I complete them. With twins I usually make two of everything so the first one gives me practice and I can do a complete run through the second time, with the camera rolling. I’ll add some of these as I finish them – most are speeded up around 5x normal, but it gives a quick overview of completing the project in a couple of minutes. Here is the link, any comments welcome….. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PFtbonMXmE&feat...

Toy Garage

12-12-2011 05:30 PM by bj383ss | 5 comments »

Here is a toy garage I am working on for my youngest son Ryan. He is really into Hot wheels. I got the plans for this garage from a friend in Australia. He has been building these for several years. I had something similar to this when I was a kid except mine was plastic. This project was alot of fun and very easy to make. The boys as you can see wanted to start playing with it before I finished it. ...

Wood Scale Models #1: 1949 Reading Steam Freight Train Part # 1

12-08-2011 07:53 PM by bj383ss | 4 comments »

1949 Reading Steam Freight Train I started a new project. It is a steam train using Gatto plans. I currently have made the main frame, boiler and the display track. I made a jig out of a strip of plywood with grooves spaced the right distance apart and then glued a fence on one side to line up the cross ties. I also made several spacers to go between the cross ties. This made it super easy to make the track. Here is the main frame coming together. The b...

Toys #1: Dinosaur Motif Kitchen

10-20-2011 05:41 AM by olivine | 4 comments »

My three-year-old daughter likes to help my wife and I cook in the kitchen. It’s nice that she wants to help but isn’t a lot that she can usually do that is both safe and/or unlikely to ruin the meal. Sometimes she decides to try and start meals without us, let me tell you. Toys + flour + eggs don’t mix will well and are quite the pain to clean. I decided that maybe she needed something else to keep her busy while we cook so I set about designing and building her a kitch...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #3: Cutting the tail slot

10-11-2011 04:21 AM by RandyMorter | 0 comments »

On the first one of these I made, I cut the slot at the rear (for holding the tail) on the band saw. But that was because I didn’t have a table saw that I liked to use. So, I decided to try the slot on the table saw. The tail and all wing pieces will be out of 1/4” thick material. I have a Freud thin kerf blade installed, which cuts about a 3/32” wide kerf, and didn’t want to bother installing my dado blade. Two passes of the thin kerf is less than 1/4”. I ...

Child's Toy Box Chest Seat

08-21-2011 07:51 AM by jakub76 | 7 comments »

I wanted a chair for my daughter’s cubby house and was looking to buy something 2nd hand. I came across a chunky pine post in my back shed and inspiration struck. I decided I could make a chest that could provide some storage for toys and double as a bench seat – I also wanted to get my head around this mortise and tenon business. I marked everything out and cut all of my tenons then cleaned them up with chisels. All hand tools so far, by necessity. I marked each ...

Shop Tools #12: Hmmmm. What is it?

06-17-2011 12:03 AM by WayneC | 26 comments »

I bought this off of ebay this week. It was listed as a small plane, but it looks like a toy, model or perhaps some form of box. I would not see a purpose for the lid if it was a toy or model. I bought it because it was unusual. It has a hinged lid. The blade and wedge appear to be decorative. The patina appears to be real indicating it is quite old. The horn has tool marks which to me indicate it was carved. Here is a view inside. The hole appears hand cut with tool marks evide...
