when I went home this summer It was planned around a memorial service for my late uncle, who was a woodworker. I inherited a shaper and other useful stuff and more to come. in my stuff was a ton of plans and a ton of wood,weekend woodworker, pop. woodworking mags and some books on woodworking. I built my son his first potty chair and my first real piece of furniture. here is a picture or 2 of it. it is made of pine because I can’t find decent wood around here other than Borg stuff and its too expensive to make mistakes

1st days progress

glued and screwed up

almost done needs some more painting and finishing
and this is the little devil its for

That looks great, my first thought was where is the John Deere logo?

I’m working on the deere logo. I need to get out there in the shop this week and cut one out to put on it.

Heck, just put a big G or a number 4 on it for the most renowned Packer. A commemorative piece for a small sports fan!

Very nice – I’ll bet your son loves it! Should have added a cup holder, too, don’t you think? I mean, if you are going to have a magazine rack and all, seems as though a drink holder would be essential :-))
