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

07-08-2010 08:02 AM 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

06-09-2010 08:48 PM 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. —...

Another great pile of wood

03-03-2010 06:20 AM by Karson | 24 comments »

I made the trek to my wood supplier that gives us free scrap wood for our Toy Making outreach at the Mason Dixon Woodworkers. These toys are given to underprivledged children at Christmas time. We usually make about 1300 or so toys each year. This is my catch from the past week. Approx 200 BD ft of Honduras Mahogany. A lot of it is 10/4 square and 30 to 35” long. I can get all of the wood that is less than 36” long. I’m also going through his cuttoff bin and taking all Sa...

Very unique piece of Popular Wood

01-28-2010 01:21 AM by Karson | 15 comments »

The Mason Dixon Woodworkers bought some popular lumber from a local sawmill operator. We picked up the wood and it was stored in our material storage building. As we started to use it I noticed that a lot of the boards had spalting but even stranger it had some mineral streaks that were pink. I’ve never seen pink before. We were cutting some of the planks today and this is a cut-off piece that I plan to use to make a few pen blanks. On one side of the board it seems tha...

Wood Art #4: Absolutely amazing, all-wood, construction vehicle toys

01-16-2010 11:21 AM by Gary Fixler | 19 comments »

Anyone know Japanese? These are from YouTube user kinohaguruma, and they’re a young child’s dream come true. These are the kinds of things I always wanted to build out of wood growing up, and still do, but I also recognize the monumental effort required now. I chose 3 of them for the post here, each getting more complex and awesome, but there are more at the link above.

Trebuchets for Xmas #1: Weapons of Mouse Destruction

12-19-2009 02:02 AM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

Just finished preliminary assembly on 4 trebuchets to hand out for the Holidays to various kids in my life. These are patterned on the Hila Trebuchet, I’m having some trouble getting a consistent release, and I need to come up with some heavier ballasts, but it’s good to get ‘em off the workbench and to the next stage.
