Some Christmas gifts for my in-laws. My son-in-law sent me an e-mail with a photo of a wood clipboard that he thought looked good. Hope it’s what he wants!! Ash, cherry, maple

The stacking blocks for the grandchildren came from the book “Making Toys that Teach” by Les Neufeld. Not as easy as it might appear to get those square blocks to line up every way possible on the pyramidal post, but it was a learning experience and will be different from the usual Toys R Expensive store fare. Oak and maple.

Nice gifts. I made clip boards one year, and they were well received. Yours is very attractive. Like the blocks, too.

I love the wood blocks. Looks like there is some challenges in making that project. Enjoy

Hi Norm,

I just used some appropriately-sized brass nuts n’ bolts. I didn’t think to look at what size they were. I just took the clip (from Rockler) into the local hardware store and found some brass machine screws that would fit through the mounting holes in it and used those. Used a little blue Loctite on the threads before I put the nuts on. The wood is slightly less than 1/2” thick.
