McKinlee's Toy Box

McKinlee's Toy BoxThis is my great granddaughter's birthday present. She'll be 1 year old in about 2 months.
I made the box out of pine with biscuits in all the seams. The corners are all lock mitered. This is the first time I ever did that long of a lock miter joint. I had to use many feather boards to hold the joint in a straight line because these wide boards had just little warp after sending them through the 60” sander at the place LJ Doug Scott used to work.. ( Thanks Doug).The bottom is in a dado all the way around and it has threaded inserts for the four casters on the corners.
Randy Smith, the retired shop teacher at the high school , made the board with the lettering on his CNC router and I copied it to the two boards with my duplicator.The box is 18” x 36” and 19” high. It is stained with a Zar chestnut stain and the inside is finished with semi gloss lacquer and the outside is finished with wiped on semi gloss poly.Cheers, Jim

7th grade pens

7th grade pensWow its been 8 years…Click for details: My daughter takes a turnMy daughter still wanted to do pens for her teachers this year as she has each year since Kindergarten. We procrastinated a bit but she tackled them starting on Saturday and finished the last of the 17 tonight before bed. She will be writing out the cards that go with each of them tomorrow night before handing them out.
She has done so well on them, got a bit tired before the last 2 or 3 were done and I helped out with some final assembly. She however did almost all of the turning herself and some with me just in the house working on other things. She has become confident in the process and the shop, perhaps next year we will work on her preparing some of the blanks.What you see here are:
Slimline pens
Atlas Pens
Anaheime Pen
Wall Street II
Sketch pencil
Seam Ripper
in all kinds of various woods that I had on hand.CtL
One proud Dad! :)
