  1. 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...
  2. Bucket Drum Kit for toddler

    My two year old is obsessed with drums of all kinds, so I figured I'd make him a drum kit that can be used outdoors (won't my neighbors be thrilled!) The frame is made of ~2 foot long western red cedar offcuts with a piece of scrap plywood for the cross piece. There are two five gallon...

  4. Race Car Bed

    An early utility project for my youngest. Did this in 2003 from mail order plans - they are still out there at 'greatplans.com' I reduced the plans to 70% which allowed this to be a toddler bed using a crib mattress instead of a twin…..Today I regret that decision as he needs a bigger bed! The...
  5. Oak Kid's table

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...
  6. Simple footstool

    I made this almost a year ago. I needed a bathroom stool for my daughter, and found these plans free online somewhere.
