My grandson turned 1 last week and to me it’s a very special day. I could have bought him a toy at the box store, but I want it to last and give him a present that you just can’t go out and buy. So I took a Saturday and had fun with it and came up with this. At his age he likes to chew on every thing like a puppy, so I used a food grade mineral oil to be safe.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
