  1. Got Christmas out of the way early, 5 sleds total

    Pictured 5 bandsawn Santa Sleds one made from Bubinga, two made from Red Cedar and two made from Mahogany, This is what I've been busy doing for the past week and a half, since these did so well for me last year, I had only made two so thought I'd be better prepared this year and wanted to get...
  2. SANTA'S SLEIGH, A team effort, Construction photo's and video

    This sleigh was a team effort.

  4. Santa's Sleigh

    Every Christmas season my wife would tell me of her childhood wish to have a real Santa's sleigh out on her lawn. This year, I cleared space in my shop and opened the LJ project list under 'Christmas' - hoping to find a sleigh I could copy. The best one I found was a true work of art by 'Brit'...
  5. Transitional Crib

    I built this transitional criib/sleigh bed for my first grand child (due in 2 weeks.. woo hoo!) out of maple. This one was not one of my own designs but was significantly modified from a basic plan I found on-line. I had a real hard time figuring out how to cut, clamp and glue the curved part of...
  6. Reindeer and Sleigh

    Reindeer and Sleigh YES, Christmas is fast approaching and it was time to change gears from wheels. I'd made these a few years ago and they were a hit for Fund Raising for the local community club plus a couple of gifts so as I had the template, I thought another 3 was the go. I cheated a bit...
  7. Were is Rudolph's red-nose was the comment!

    A bloke I've known since 1960 who's been a sort of big brother to me dropped in last week. He was impressed with seeing my woodwork projects first hand BUT! Were is Rudolph's red-nose was the comment! Yes that's the question my big brother asked when looking at the set of Sleigh & Reindeer I...
  8. Collapsable Sleigh (Christmas Decoration)

    I made this about four years ago for a client who wanted a copy of her sleigh to give as a donation to a charity auction. It is made with 1/2" plywood from the home center. You can get four sleighs out of one sheet of plywood. I made templates, so machining the curves was fast and easy with a...

  12. Dashing Through the Snow Scroll Sawn Sleigh Ornaments

    I really loved creating these little scroll sawn sleigh ornaments. In looking for "antique sleighs" for reference, I saw literally hundreds of beautiful and flowing designs. It really made me want to go out an find a real antique sleigh! (But where would I put it if I did!) I wanted to make the...
  13. Christmas Wishes from French Goat Toys & More

    Perhaps, there is a better place to post this, but I figured, it was a finished project of sorts. The photographs are the progressive walk to my shop on a winter night. Certainly, there are better poets in the world, but here is my Lumber Jocks version of Twas the Night before Christmas...

  15. Portland Cutter

    My latest project. It is a early 1900's Portland Cutter. Woodworking consists of new sides, back and dash. All made with luan. Had to replace floor boards also. The curved dash was a bit of a challenge, soaked wood before bending into pposition.
  16. Sleigh-style Crib in Black Walnut

    Just a quick update. I've added another set of legs and bed-rails. This converts the crib into a bed. The sides come off as a unit and the crib front and back become the head and foot boards. In this pic, you can see the connection with buried bed bolts. (The brass bed-bolt covers were...
  17. Walnut Sleigh Crib

    Got my first kid, a boy, due in a little less than a month and the wife was pretty particular on the type of crib she wanted. We looked at several cribs from various manufacturers, but the ones we liked were a bit pricey and the construction was just not up my standards for that kind of dough...

    Most of the projects I make are for gifts or charity. But every once in a while I make a project just for me. I think this one is a keeper. This is a Patrick Speilman and James Reidel pattern. It is made from 1/4" baltic Birch plywood.
