The latest addition to our granddaughter’s wooden kitchen. [Christmas present] I mixed White Oak and Red Oak to make the mixer. The Bowl is Box Elder. Alternated stains to give the color effect. As with all my toys there are no nails, screws, etc. Just wood dowels hold it together. Now she is set to help Ma Ma make cookies at her kitchen.
Picture 3&4 is something only a true Lumber Jock will appreciate. The “made in C—-a” phone holders come apart all to easy. So I decided to build one out of wood. This prototype is cedar. Others may follow. My wife says I am crazy, what is your opinion? A novelty if nothing more, can’t buy one in Walmart!

Great Christmas present there, I think you got a good idea on the phone holder for construction type workers but I think you need a top hinged and clasp down so it doesn’t fall out but other than that I think you got a good idea there for the construction workers, carpenters, plumbers road crews etc. ones doing a lot of climbing bending over twisting banging around etc. Good idea.

The mixer is great. I know it will be cherished for a long time to come. I think you have a good thing going there for the phone holder. The prototype is a good start and with a few additions as Gary suggested, I wouldn’t mind having one myself.

Here is one, how about making one a little bigger to clip to your belt that will hold some ice and a six pack? you make one and I’d buy it. L.O.L. Oh wait you would have to make two, one for each side to keep you in balance L.O.L.

Your Granddaughter is going to love the mixer. As for the phone holder, A good idea, but you might want to think about lining it with something softer than wood so it doesn’t bang around. Maybe leather or something else real durable.

Woodworking for the kids is what its all about. Maybe she will grow up and want to cut the wood herself.
Lets all keep the kids knowing that they can make things too. We can’t let the SUPER STORES destoy hand made and destroy our great country through china made products.
