  1. Projects Marble Model using 3 large wood gears to raise the marbles

    I have built hand-cranked marble models that use two 4-bar linkages to raise the marbles, and another one that uses a Marble Pump. I decided to build a new model that uses 3 large gears with holes drilled in them to raise the marbles up about 16" before they begin their descent. One surprise...
  2. Projects Hand-Cranked Marble Pump with Divider, Dumper, 3 bowls, and a ramp

    Haven't posted since last winter, so took me a while to figure out this web page :) For more details, see my woodworking site using this link. I made a YouTube video of the model in action. You can use this link to see the video.
  3. Doll House - Xmas Present

    I made this dollhouse for my 3 year old niece for Christmas. All the furniture is glued down, so none of it will get lost. The kitchen counter tops are real marble I got for free. Here is a few more pics:
  4. Wahoo (aggravation) Board Game

    My in-laws are crazy about games, any kind of game. Last winter I was introduced to what they simply called "the board game", which turned out to be Wahoo, or Aggravation as most know it. I was hooked immediately. The board they used was an old sheet of T1-11 siding with holes drilled through...
  5. Green and Green inspired end tables

    These Green and Green inspired end tables are made from Cherry and Hickory with masaranduba pegs. The top has a piece of Marble inset.
  6. Marble Top night stands

    This is a pair of nightstands I made and finished almost a year ago not. They are made mostly of poplar. I made one and then made the second, so the finishes don't match perfectly, but they look pretty good from either side of the bed…
  7. Coffe Table and Side Table

    This is a simple coffee table made from red oak and cherry blossom marble. I also made a matching side table to go along with it. The stain is Minwax - Red Mahogany.
  8. Walnut and Marble End Table with Light

    I made this Walnut end table for my oldest daughter and son in law. I saw the concept at a Tile Center where they had built a bar and put lights behind the marble. This table has a 12" x 12" marble top with 4 sides that are 3" x 12" marble. Fairly inexpensive to make since there is not a lot...
  9. Luca's Rocking Air Plane

    Three years ago my 1st grandson Santino was born and I built him a rocking horse. He is now big enough to ride it. My 2nd grandson Luca was born this past fall. So not wanting to miss building something for him to ride when he was big enough I decided to make a rocking airplane for him. I...
  10. Marble Top Hall/Sofa Table

    This project has been sitting in my shop for a couple of months and I finally got the top polished, so now it's done! This was a collaboration with my friend and neighbor Kevin who has a good source for marble and other stones. The top is brown Dark Emperador Marble. The base is made pretty...
  11. Neat Marble Lifter using 8 Wooden Links

    I originally made this model using brass links because I thought wood links would not be accurate enough for the 3 times the marble is exchanged. You can see this model on this website using this link. Unfortunately, the solder joints on the brass are very weak, and links break at the solder...
  12. Games

    These are a couple of games I made for the family. The first one is called "Nine Men's Morris". have a look HERE and the second is just a straight Solitaire Game. Both where made from bits from the scrape box except the marbles which where brought for the games
  13. Marble Game Board

    I've wanted to make a game board of some sort for a while now, but I wasn't really sure where to start. I made a cube in a cube awhile back, it wasn't really a game, more of a puzzler but it was a lot of fun. This time I wanted to make something that I could play with my kids around the table...
  14. Kids chair with marble race back.

    I built this chair as a prototype for one I intend to give to the school for their fundraiser. It is based on the design from Jeff Miller's book on children's furniture. Made from walnut that I had laying around. I finished it with Tru-oil a product that gun guys seem to like. Can't figutre out...
  15. Rocking plane

    My dad built an rocking horse for my 1st nephew. We decided should build 1 for my other nephew. We didn't want to build the same rocking horse so we went on line and saw a plan for this plane. It was pretty plain, all pine and painted. We couldn't do that. So we used 6 different woods. We...
  16. Cute Turtle Marble game for Grand-kids

    Thumbing through the Meisel paper catalog that was mailed to me, I saw a neat game I could build for the grandchildren to play with. You tilt the game to guide the marbles or gumballs through the maze, after dropping it through a hole in the turtle's head. Here is a link to the project pattern...
  17. 2-person marble game

    My grandkids really like marble games, so I found a pattern of a neat one at Meisel's web site. Two kids each get 10 marbles, then you see who can get all 10 in their box first…........if you release too many at once, they get jammed up and slow down, to timing is important. I used by table...
  18. Small and Large Marble Machines

    I bought the 33 page instruction manual on how to build the large marble machine a couple years ago, but with its over 400 pieces and that many pages of instructions, it scared me off from building it. Recently, my grandson and son asked me to build the build the big model…......so I tackled...
  19. Magnetic marble game for grandkids

    My grandkids really like the marble game maze games I have made for them :) My wife saw a photo of a magnetic marble game, where you use a magnetic pen to move the marbles to their designated spot, using the right color and number of marbles. From the poor photo she had, I came up with a...
  20. Walnut Cooler Stand

    Nothing new here but man was this one hell of a project. Mom said she wanted a cooler box and wanted it in walnut so I figured I might as well make it a skill builder. First time doing a hand cut mortise and tenon frame, first time splining miters, as well as first time inlaying a large piece...
