Hi Everyone,

I will happily share ideas and any of my own made up patterns from my website, that you will want. I Always like new ideas and usually manage to make my own patterns up. I can help and scan/email to anyone.

The icon is “Tanader” a relative of the famous one. This is a 6-1/2 foot long toy box.
Please checkout my wbesite at http://aeontoys.weebly.com/index.html

Any suggestions or questions are very welcome.

I’d be happy to join your buddy list. You sound like me, just an old fart enjoying the sunset of our lives. I will add you to my list which is kinda selective….you are #2. Have a blessed day.

Hi engine was treated to a fast road cam, new pistons, bearings, a complete rebuild and my first ever brand new carb! It only took 4 years and 4 different engine builders and £1k! I will be painting it tomorrow in robin’s egg blue.

I love your toyboxes especially the pickup truck, I wish I’d thought of that, I make toyboxes and soapboxes just couldn’t see the connection… DUH!

You grew up on a ND farm? Whereabouts? I grew up in a very small ND town southwest of Bismarck. Farming life is deeply ingrained in my own soul.

This isn’t really a welcome because you’ve been around for quite awhile already, so, good to be your Buddy on Lumberjocks!

Hi ralbuck you have a wide variety of interests and some interesting projects. I like your rocking horses, I considered making rocking horses at one time but other priorities got in the way (isn’t that the story), I have a couple of Anthony Dew’s books on rocking horse making and making at least one is on my list. Cheers.

That’s funny It said I was already in your buddy list. But it said I wasn’t before I clicked the add button! Oh well! Sometimes things get screwed up! Life is fun!

Hi Ralbuck, I grew up in New York City, but left after 22 years to reside in several shipbuilding cities finally retiring in South Mississippi. Back then, when you wanted something, if you couldn’t buy it, you made it. A whole lot of self education was the norm for those of my generation. At the ripe old age of 83, I still strive to learn more The old body is showing it’s weaknesses, but overall I’m still productive. People when they reach that twilight age, tend to give up and await their final judgement. I am different. I don’t dwell on the hereafter, but on the present. If I have done one thing right in my life, it has been to prepare myself emotionally for the future. Fear not; want not.

Have your say...
