  1. Cat light

    My son has been wanting to build a light for a while now. We just finally had some left over cherry that we could use. He found a picture on the internet he wanted to use and did all the measurements. He was able to feed the planer, mark out all of the cuts, use the drill press, and help with...

  3. The Playhouse for a Townhouse

    A playhouse I built for my son(s, we're expecting in Jan). I used a router on table to create a half inch wide dado for the cedar edging. A cedar post with a deck cap from Lowes provides the stability. This project ihad some interesting design challenges. First, I couldn't build something...

  5. The Marble Roll

    THE MARBLE ROLL When I was teaching children's carpentry and science and a friend lent me a small wooden marble roll to use in class.

  6. The Mirror Steerer

    The Mirror Steeror Years ago a friend offered me a large pile of plexiglas mirror rejects. At the time I was teaching a science and carpentry class for kids, so I was always looking for interesting materials. While turning possibilities over in my mind, I took two pieces (8″ X 24″) and...

  9. The Rope Machine

  10. Kids Step Stools

    My daughter uses her plastic step stool all the time and constantly drags is from room to room. So I decided to make a few of these to keep in the other rooms. I found the plans on Ana White's website. She does good work. Really this was just good practice for me since I'm still getting my feet...
  11. Father and Son Mallet Set, scrap pine and red oak

    My 2-year-old adores playing in the shop with me, so I conceived this mallet project as something he could help with. Construction is very straight-forward - I saw the technique on LJs, so thanks to whoever that was! The second picture pretty much says it all, though the thicker handle on the...

  14. 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...

  17. Toolbox for the kids...

    My first woodworking project that involved my two little aspiring woodworkers! The amazing part of all this was that building this together actually kept their interest for a FULL HOUR! We wore our safety glasses, reviewed the rules "No touching anything! Ask as many questions as you want...

    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...
  19. Two-Step Step Stool

    This is my first project to post and first one I've completed! Just got some woodworking gear for Christmas and wanted to make a step stool for my daughter as she is about ready for a normal bed. My wife thought the WWMM template would be the best for this, and I was hoping to give one of...
