    Christmas Fund Raiser for the Local Community Club -VW Baja Bugs by two The is made from laminating some hardwood offcuts of timber which my builder neighbour gave me plus Cider Shingles for the centre strip. They are approximately 7" [180mm] long by 4.25" [110mm] high by 5.5" [140mm] wide...
  3. Projects It’s so good to be back in the shed making wooden toys with wheels for fun and play.

    It’s so good to be back in the shed making wooden toys with wheels for fun and play. The new hip is going well, still another couple of months with the physio to get it fully strong. I knocked up a couple of oversized Baja Bugs as giveaway items. Both Papa Smurf and Handy Smurf were very...
  4. Build-A-Bear Closet

    This is a Build-A-Bear closet that I made for my Daughters 6th birthday. I made wooden hangers and the inside is finished with red velvet material that I glue gunned onto a foam backer board. It was fun to make, but definatley a one off.
  5. BullDozer

    Walnut and oak with a natural Danish oil finish. The tracks are a lot a work and the blade will keep your attention on high till it's done but a really nice project to build. Here's the build blog.
  6. child's toybox

    This toybox is the 6th one I have done. The first trial version had foam letters from walmart. They were stuck on with a sticky pad on the back. We quickly learned that babies love to pull them off. From then on, we have only used wood letters. I have done a few initials (when names...
  7. purpleheart tractor

    I need to make several more of these to hook other trailers to that i have already made
  8. The Rope Machine

    THE ROPE MACHINE I first saw a picture of a rope machine in a book of projects for kids. At the time I passed it over and handed the book on to my wife, who also worked with children. She purchased a rope machine at a weaving store and found that kids loved it. They were intrigued with...
  9. Toy Chest for the Nephews

    Its been a while since I last posted as I've been working on a toy chest for my nephews. Unfortunately, the camera was on the fritz, so I don't have any more images prior to the assembly of the chest and the finished product. I've always found chests/boxes to be fun to make and this one was no...
  10. 32 Deuce Coupe - Toy Car - Hot Rod - Little Deuce Coupe

    Number three in the Freaky Fords Blue Series. The more I look at this color combination the more I like it. I'm partial to blue any way. I think it works well with the flat black wheels. I really wanted to have white walls on these but I could not figure out how to do it and make them look good...
  11. Jordan's Rocking horse

    This is a rocking horse I made for my grandson's first birthday.
  12. Bat Car - Toy Car - Batmobile - Play Pal

    This little car is a lot smaller than the ones I posted previously. Only 3.5 inches long. I've made quite a few of these and this one is by far the best looking one. I made it from some spruce I had from a very old project. I'm not saying how long I've had this wood. It smells like Christmas...
  13. Toy 32 Ford Deuce Coupe Hot Rod

    Body is made from MDF and painted with Home Depot Oops paint and an air brush. This was my firs try at making toys with MDF. I might use up what I have but I don't know that I'll ever use it again. The dust was terrible and this stuff soaks up paint like a sponge. That said with a lot of sanding...
  14. My little blue mate Handy had been giving me a hard time about lack of shed time &found a Jeep Plan

    My little blue mate Handy had been giving me a hard time about the lack of shed time & found a Jeep Plan… We started the plan but soon found it to be way to small to allow for personal modifications and strengthening, so we restarted the project up-scaling the plan by 150% and the fun began...
  15. Wooden Toy Truck - Play Pal - Monster Truck

    The second Play Pal Monster Truck I have posted here. I made this one from pine. I'm experimenting with materials and these are only 3.5 inches long. I just about always have shot pieces of 2×4 laying around. I think the mystery lumber they sell these isn't really a good choice most of the time...
  16. Baby Crib - First Project I Designed and Built Myself

    When I found out my wife was pregnant I jokingly said I would build the crib and she held me to it. It is constructed with poplar for everything but the beadboard on the back panel which is pine. It is painted with an espresso finish. Let me know what you think.
  17. Dollhouse

    I made my first dollhouse for my granddaughter for Xmas. It was a labor of love. Used about every woodworking skill I had. Somebody gave me a huge amount of 3/8 hardwood plywood so I figured I would try to build this. I woodburned some of the floors to simulate wood. Doors were attached with...
  18. P51 and Spitfire

    These are my *********************************** sander carving projects, they are out of pine and painted. My Aunt for some reason wanted me to make her a couple planes for her husband. They are toys so I hope she likes them or I guess he likes them anyway they are here in all their glory.
  19. Wooden plane for my 3 year old son

    On Father's Day I got the gift of some uninterrupted shop time in the morning and early afternoon. Felt good. That evening my 3 year old son Milo asked me what I was doing, and I said I was making things. He said, "Daddy, can you make me something?" Why not? So I told him that I would. He, of...
  20. Matchbox-Hot Wheels Garage-Service Center-Car Park

    Not your basic fine furniture project here but a fun one for the 2 year old grand son's birthday coming soon. He loves playing with the small Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars. The walls are 1/2 inch Baltic Birch. The door frames are Birch strips. The guard-rail around the curved part of the ramp is...
