Mason Dixon Toy Making 2011

1289 days ago by Karson | 14 comments »

I was chatting in a message to A1Jim and telling about the work that I did today and I got to thinking about something that has come up in making our toys. The newspaper article this year brought a new person who wanted to volunteer on helping make toys. But, he has a full time job and is not retired so he wanted to do it at his home in nights and weekends. So it was agreed that he would help up make our Lincoln Log Cabin toy. This requires about 5,000 ft of 3/4 square stock. We are mak...

1320 days ago by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Well It is Sunday night again and my 2nd week has come to an end. This week my completed projects were actually done at work. I am working on organizing the office and cleaning up some clutter. I decided to remove some old tables from a small area next to our staff table (for lack of a better term) and install a small laptop desk so it can be closer to me and the filing cabinet. Here is what I came up with.. The desktop is mdf and the support system is 2×3 lumber. I of course used...

Post and Panel Construction System #1: What Is It?

1513 days ago by Pete Tevonian | 1 comment »

The Post and Panel System started with the desire to let my son build cool castles out of blocks. But I didn’t like that regular blocks fall down so easily. A little kid is going to have a hard time protecting his castle from barbarians, pets and siblings if the only things he can use are gravity and friction! So, unlike regular old blocks, the posts and panels in this set lock together. In minutes, without any instructions, your kids (or, be honest, you) can create complex and s...

Toot, Toot, Tootorial #3: How to make a whistle on a router table

1541 days ago by Mary Anne | 38 comments »

Sorry about the delay in posting this tutorial of the series. I ran into some technical difficulties… which is another way of saying I sometimes have the attention span of a gnat and messed things up the first time around. Speaking of messing things up, I’ve injured my knee and have to stay off my feet for a few days. I am only on day two and already going crazy. All in all, it looks a good time for going on with this toot toot tootorial series. —...
