A friend of mine recently added a baby girl to his family, and I wanted to make a little something to send his way. This is based on a plan I found in an old project book, but I used the gear generator from Woodgears.ca to make the layout template for the holes. You could also do it with a compass and protractor, but that’s much more time consuming. Endcaps are circles cut using the table saw sled method, and the rods are simple 5/16 dowels. Don’t forget to taper the pins, otherwise the 2nd endcap is REALLY hard to get on! It probably would have held together fine without the glue since the holes were so tight.
This project is left unfinished since it will probably be gnawed on at some point.
