  1. child's toybox

    This toybox is the 6th one I have done. The first trial version had foam letters from walmart. They were stuck on with a sticky pad on the back. We quickly learned that babies love to pull them off. From then on, we have only used wood letters. I have done a few initials (when names...
  2. Toddler Bed for my son

    I've found a lot of inspiration from LumberJocks community, and is typically the 1st place I look when planning a new project. I figured it's time I started giving back, and maybe someone will see something or some element that they would like ask about or find useful. I was in need of a new...
  3. Curvy Step Stools

    These little stools are very similar to a pair that I made for Christmas gifts in 2013. I was SO excited to see that Ana White had update the plans that I used, making the construction much simpler. They are essentially the same stool, the main difference being that the sides are do not sit at...

    Another request from my wife and two girls.
  5. Kid Shavers!

    Well, you don't actually shave a kid with them but kids can shave with them! I've been on a razor/shaving kick lately and the kids have been getting involved too. I decided that we all need our own razor to play shaving with. About an hour in the shop with some dowels, screws, and acrylic...
  6. Football Bed | Custom

    This is a new edition to my Sports Bed series. This football bed was completed in August 2009. It has the same shape as the baseball bed, but in the football theme. We changed the headboard score board and replaced the bats with a goal post. To add a little more detail, I added hash marks on...

    This is a boat bed that was completed in November 2011. It is part of my Children's line of furniture It is one of four that I'm building at the same time. This customer requested custom color on the base. The portholes were an add-on and not usually on my standard version. For more...
  8. Dollhouse

    I made my first dollhouse for my granddaughter for Xmas. It was a labor of love. Used about every woodworking skill I had. Somebody gave me a huge amount of 3/8 hardwood plywood so I figured I would try to build this. I woodburned some of the floors to simulate wood. Doors were attached with...
  9. Bed containing recycled and new wood

    Sawed up my little girl's baby bed and incorporated the pieces into the headboard and footboard of a new "big girl" bed. The corner posts, four rails (sides and ends), and slats and their supports are all new wood. The "ladder" portions of the head- and footboard are composed of recycled...
  10. Flower table ala Pottery Barn Kids

    My wife and I wanted to make a "ripoff" of a Pottery Barn Kids table. I started with a 2'x2' piece of 1/2" MDF for the top. I used a compass to make segments in the top. Then my wife traced a cereal bowl to get the right radius for the petals. I made legs by laminating pieces of 3/4" MDF scraps...
  11. Another kid project

    This is another project to involve the kids. We made 3, 1 for mom and 1 for each grandma. I got the plans from the Missouri Department of Conservation website and used scraps of 3/4" plywood.

  13. Mock Jail for family photo ops

    Our small town, Fairbury, Illinois, pop. 3,800…....still has a couple of jail cells in our 1892 old City Hall. Although it would make a great photo op for citizens and visitors to take their pictures, it needs a lot of renovation work…....and it is so small that it is hard to get a picture in...
  14. Oak Kid's table

    My boys, 2 and 4 yrs, needed a new table. The table was inspired by an Edward Barnsley piece I saw. I had a few oak boards on hand, and wanted to use them up. I thought it was all red oak, but it turns out one of the boards was white oak, which I had already designated for the top. Not wanting...

  17. Children's Tower

    Looking through here one day I saw someone had built a similar tower. I figured I could build it for way less than the 200 bucks that Little People were charging on Amazon. The plywood was just laying around. I built a jig out of MDF and used a spiral bit and guide to cut it out. A flush cut bit...

    Last call to board for an awesome sleeping adventure. This bed is a variation of my standard train bed. Just changed the colors and graphics up a little. It was completed in December 2010. It was one of the Christmas order. It has a real working light with a three stage touch sensor on the...
