Wheelbarrow

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


WheelbarrowThis is what a woodworker builds when someone comes in her yard and steals the store bought one. I should be thanking the thief! Based on Spike Carlson's Family Handyman layout and directions, I took 1/2 inch plywood and made a slightly smaller version of his design. 1 Sheet of plywood and some PT pine for the handles and legs covered in a transparent deck stain and I've got a, better then my stolen one, garden cart. I used 3 ft threaded rod and fender washers with 2 nuts jammed together for the axle. The wheels are all hardened plastic so I don't have to worry about deflate gate. All pieces are fastened with construction adhesive and exterior wood screws. Now I have something to carry the weeds in from the garden I tried to grow! Thanks for looking!

Cherry Baby Rattle

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Cherry Baby RattleMy daughter is expecting her first child in a few months. (Yes, my wife and I are going to be grandparents! We're understandably excited.) Some good friends hosted a baby shower for my daughter the other day and I managed to get this finished in time so this would be among the gifts she received. I “borrowed” the idea from a fellow Lumberjock — Jim Jakosh — thanks, Jim. I decided on cherry and used pretty much the same techniques that Jim described, although I did chuck up a round nose router bit in my drill press to round the bottoms of the holes I drilled with a forstner bit. It's about 5” long and 1-3/16” diameter with a 5/8” diameter stem. I finished it with a mixture of mineral oil and beeswax. And if it looks like I may turned through to the interior, that little dark spot you see in some of the pics is just a natural feature of the cherry.
