Coupla fun projects I did over this winter. The first is a letterpress – you know, put some stamps on the bottom and smash away. It doesn’t work very well, but the kids have enjoyed it. Second, a picture of three “mallets” the kids constructed today in order to do a leatherworking project. Last, on of those classic knock hockey tables built by a pair of brothers.

Hope you get some ideas for your kids/small yorkies/etc. etc.

For the kids, ha. I built a hockey game for myself. Not planning on growing up anytime soon! Well done!

One case where “for the children” doesn’t sound like political pandering.
