  1. Find a Home for an Intarsia Carousel Horse Wall Hanging

    I really had some fun making this piece and it was a real challenge. I saw a picture on the internet and made a pattern based on that with Inkskape. It ended up having 190 different pieces with 13 different kinds of woods. The pole was a real challenge to make out of a block of yellow heart...
  2. pony carousel

    This was my sister's baby shower gift when she was pregnant with my neice. I decided to try something different. I have been making toyboxes for kids because every child needs a toybox. I have posted one of my toyboxes in my projects. It is made out of pine, and painted with acrylic paints...
  3. Oak Carousel

    This is an oak carousel I made for my wife. The ones you buy in the stores just don't cut it. They are not tall enough to put our table top spices under and if you put them on top they tip and spin off. This is made out of 3/4" solid oak. I used a Cabot dark mohogany stain for the napkin...
  4. Intarsia Carousel Giraffe (I’m my own worst enemy)

    Explanation: I wanted to make a piece that was a little more difficult and I think I went overboard. 402 pieces and 140 hours later this is what I ended up with. Hope yall like it. This one is another in a series of carousel animals that I'm trying to find a good place to donate them to. I...
  5. Toy Carousel

    Made this for a Toddler, bought the book, American Folk Toys used for 5 bucks, and along with that and the help from ToyMakingDad here. The patterns in the book had to be Enlarged, and Dan provided me with the full size, as I do not have that capability, so Thank You again Dan. It does Spin...
  6. Desktop Carousel for wife

    My wife found a desktop carousel at a hobby store and thought it would work perfectly to hold her stuff for homeschooling our kids. The hobby store wanted $45…it was on sale for $26. Mine cost…$0. I'll explain. A company I used to work for got new machines in all the time for customers. The...
  7. Oak keepsake box

    Oak keepsake box. I do believe I have incorporated a "design first" in box-making with this piece. What might that be, you ask? Well, I am not the first to make an octagonal box. Nor am I the first to design a support structure like the legs on this box. Nor am I the first to use the idea...
  8. Intarsia Carousel Rhino Wall Hanging

    This is another carousel animal for a series of at least 5 pieces. I have had a couple of good suggestions for a place to donate the whole set to after it is completed. If anyone still has any other ideas, please let me know. This was a labor of love to finish this one because I have never...
  9. Toy Merry Go Round

    This is fun project from John R Nelson Jr's "American Folk Toys." It is all very straight forward and a very low stress build. All from pine shelving that a friend had no use for. I made a few little changes like swapping out the camel for a zebra. I also increased the size of the center...
  10. Elephant Merry-Go-Round

    This a toy for a one year old boy but my understanding is that his three year old sister is the one who shows him how to make it work…even when he is not around! It is a mom a dad and two baby elephants. As you spin the platform the strings wind around the pole and when you release it, the...
  11. Flame Mane Carousel Horse

    This horse is one I had wanted to carve for many years. I've used the silhouette of this horse as a logo for several decades. As it seems the horses get heavier as I get older this may be about the last of the carousel figures for me.
  12. The Dapple grey

    this mini carousel horse was carved in basswood. and started out as 9 pieces. painted with acrylic paint then varnished . it was my second mini carousel horse
  13. Hand-cranked toy Carousel

    The December 2015 issue of Woodworker's Journal magazine has a neat pattern to make a toy carousel. I decided to make two of these carousels. I entered the design into Google Sketchup. I had to approximate the wavy ring cam at the bottom by using a series of steps. The pony shafts are driven...
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Barbara Frum worked for the CBC here for years and years and was one of the lead interviewers of her time. Always a lady but this time the guy got under her skin. One of the best loved and most requested Barbara Frum interviews is with a British farmer who had grown the world's largest cabbage...
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    My daughter's boyfriends grandfather made this. This guy is one of the most creative woodworkers ever. He carved a 8 foot tall elephant too. Enjoy!
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I bought myself a Groz #4 a while back and when time permits I have been tying to tune it up and get it working. I have the blade (OEM) nice and sharp and have the chip breaker flattened properly (well I think that I do). However when ever I put everything together and run the plane across a...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I looked at leevalley.com because I saw an ad, but I wasn't very impressed with their selections or price. I did see some nice lid hold open devices and some clever brass feet for boxes. Where do you get your hinges and accessories for boxes?
