Animal Train #1: Getting Started

04-11-2008 12:38 AM by Alan | 4 comments »

I thought it would be fun to make some toys. I had everything but a band saw so I picked up the bottom-of-the-line Delta Shopmaster to learn on. So far, a lot of fun and I made a rough prototype from some plans from a book I bought. My son instantly claimed it as his own, so a good sign. Now I am at this stage of the Circus: I need to sand these and the wheels and put them together. Still undecided on finish, leave them plain or a salad bowl finish or paint them. I may have...

New toys from Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo

11-14-2007 05:55 PM by Nils | 4 comments »

On Saturday I went to the Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo, California. I dragged along a friend who’s done some woodworking (he’s taking a class at the Palo Alto Adult Ed, which apparently has an awesome shop) but who didn’t want to buy anything. I made up for this by spending my entire budget. I had a list of things I “needed” – and I kept pretty close to the list, although my dollar didn’t stretch as far as I’d hoped it would. Anyway, here’...

Toys for my Grandson #1: Jordan's first birthday

09-18-2007 04:20 PM by robbi | 7 comments »

Well, as some of you know, I have been working on a rocking horse for my grandson’s first birthday. I finally finished it, I will post a picture of it in my projects. I must say, it was quite the challenge. I had a very frustrating day trying to router the pieces to a template, I finally gave up and just cut them on the band saw and sanded them to size. At one point I actually thought, I am not going to be able to do this. And me and my big mouth, I had already told my daughter wh...
