  2. Shaving stand, Rimu and maple

    First post here, just finished a little project for my dad's birthday. His shaving gear is looking a little sad these days so i whipped this up for him, first spline joints and definitely learned a couple of things for next time. Not a lot of progress stuff but its pretty self explanatory.
  3. A Gift for My Daughter

    I built this rocking horse for my daughter's first birthday. She does not feel comfortable enough to vigorously rock it, but she will sit on the horse for a few minutes so she seems to enjoy it. She loved to play with the base before it was fully assembled, as shown in the picture. The plans...

    CL listing. The pictures of it make it look brand new. It is on a closed base with wheels and comes with three, 93 1/2" blades. No other details.

  5. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have seen project posts in the past where groups of woodworkers make toys for Christmas and then donate them. I am thinking about doing the same. Does anyone have plans/recommendations of what to make? I am thinking about a car/truck/vehicle but am open to other suggestions.
  6. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories

I have been thinking of getting a jointer for a few months now, either a new Grizzly (waiting for the annual Christmas sale) and stalking CL hourly. If I buy new, it would...

    One of the benefits of living in a large metro area is the number of wood shops available to me. I go to three different stores, but mostly to Timber Woodworking in Mesa Arizona. The tool I planned to buy was available at Home Depot for $220 and at Timber for $230. Not only did I decide to...
