  1. A wonderful WW experience

    The video quality is not the best but, the concept presented sure is.
  2. I had a brainstorm this morning. I want to make a jewerly box for my 4 year old granddaughter, but I want it to be a little "magical". To that end I want to use a steel ball in a track sandwiched between two thin sheets, the steel ball would be held at one end by a low power magnet and moved to the other end by a "magic wand" (stick with a magnet on the end"" where the steel ball would activate a magnetic catch, allowing the lid to open. Does anyone know where I can find low power magnets and low power magnetic catches. Or suppliers that list the power of the magnets involved. If I know how strong the catch magnet is I can get a strong rare earth magnet to put in the wand. Thanks in advance.
  3. My oldest girl is making a gift for a friend of hers, she needed some boards cut to length on my SCMS. So today she asked me to cut them for her. DAD: Come on over here kid, you can cut these. DAUGHTER: Dad, I don't feel like it, I am a bit nervous on that saw. DAD: Awe come on, you'll be fine, I'll be right here, just keep your hands over here like this, ease the blade down, and you'll be fine. DAUGHTER: Dad, I really don't feel like it, can you please cut those boards for me. DAD: You used to cut lumber pretty good kid, remember that birdhouse you built a few years ago? Come on over here, you'll be fine. DAUGHTER: Dad, I'd rather not. DAD: (slightly disappointed look) DAUGHTER: (big smile) DAD! Remember my college scholarship, I am a violinist, if anything happens to my hands, my music scholarship is dead! DAD: (pause, brain spun, deep thinking now, looking at the ground, then I look up) WELL SHOOT DAB BERN BE DANGED KID, WHAT THE HECK YOU DOIN! GIVE ME THAT DANGED BOARD, GET AWAY FROM HERE I'LL CUT IT!!!! DAUGHTER: (laughing at my sudden concern for her safety) Jeez Dad, when it comes to money you're all heart. Ya gotta love our kids, they are so smart sometimes!
  4. Rocking Dino

    A while back I got a set of plans for a kids rocking dinosaur. It was printed on both sides of a large piece of paper and folded like a road map. The parts were "traceable" as advertised, BUT large pieces of carbon paper were required and the various parts had lines that crisscrossed each other all over the place. To keep the original plans I tried making a copy but that turned out to be a mess. Then I got a bright idea and sent it off to MEBCWD to see if he could work his magic and turn it into a CNC file. He emailed me a file back that showed up like this. Mike is good with Aspire. He's even better than good, and ...... reasonable. $$ well spent. Got busy cutting parts out of 1" panels and 2 x 12's Parts are cut out!!! I took the edge off the exposed edges with a round over bit and did a little (very little) sanding. The rockers were just mirrored, so they were exactly alike. A cut up piece of 1 x4 and the platform was made. Now the big test. Will the parts all go together. So far so good! A couple of minor adjustments and the dino fit on the platform. There's 2 - 2 1/2 " construction screws in each foot driven in from the bottom. Mixed up some Rustoleum Hunter Green and Gloss White paint and made a mess. You can saw a wooden ball in half and make fancy eyes or cheat like I did and go to Michaels. The mouth is just painted on. It could be Vcarved if you wanted to do the two sided carving step. Advantage of using the CNC --- all the parts are as exact as you need for assembly. The band saw was never turned on. Each part is exactly the same allowing you to make 3-4-5 units at a time. Or, as many as desired, even if it's just one. Sanding is minimal. More on the finishing surface than the edges. Once you have a file on a thumb drive, you save it and bring it out whenever needed.

Got kids! Even if you don't this Locomotive Toybox chest will bring out the kid in any woodworker. I thought this would be a fun one to publish here today, basic construction, and perhaps this will end up in a child's life by Christmas! Have fun!

  10. Flying a Kite

    It's been awhile since I have flown a kite, mama brought home a kite in the shape of a WWII airplane for our 10 year old son. I just got home from work a while ago and we finally got a good breeze going. He's had the kite for two weeks now and this is the first day with any breeze. My son and I walked out to the street in front of our home and launched the kite, it has a short string, about 100 feet, but it's high enough to ride the breeze. I need to bring him home a spool so we can get that sucker up 1000 feet like I used to do when I was a kid. Anyway, it's nice to see a child with a kite in hand, specially my own son. He loves it, I just came into my shop quickly to post this, I can see him flying his kite from where I am sitting, and now I am heading back out to sit on the curb and watch. This definitely brings back memories of child hood for me, it's great fun.
  11. Well, last weekend I was out in the shop just cleaning up still, and loading a cord of firewood that was delivered to our home, after we stacked the wood I continued cleaning up the shop and getting ready for some jobs coming up, and my son wanted something to do, so I told him to go over to the wood bin, grab anything he wants, and I pointed him to my bench of planes, and he picked out an old Stanley spokeshave, he put a piece of scrap up in the vise, and he commenced to shaving down that piece of wood till he had a "spear" to go with a gladiator shield he and I made together a few weeks back. My son was on that stick shaving it down for two hours, just having a blast, yep, just stick a piece of wood in a boys hand and give him a saw or a plane and sit back and watch him entertain himself!
