Another toy for the Boys and Girls Club Fund Raiser - A Doll's Cradle Another toy for the Boys and Girls Club Fund Raiser – A Doll's CradleMy wife bought a Baby Doll then we had a look through my cradle plans settling on one from an old Wood Magazine design.I had to scale the cradle to fit the 16 (400mm) doll.
I made a set of templates to the scaled pattern and used some old clear radiata pine.
The ends had to be jointed to get a wide enough board.
It's all glued together with Titebond Original plus screws and plugs.
I added a mixture of Jarrah & Mahogany stains to my homemade WipeOnPoly for the finish.

Burr Puzzle

Burr PuzzleMaybe I'll make some of these for Christmas.
Poplar, dipped in boiled linseed oil.
Hey is that warning on the BLO about rags spontaneously bursting into flames a real thing? If I use a rag just to wipe off excess oil after dipping do I have to seal it in a water-filled hermetic container and put it on a rocket to the moon or does that only apply if the rag has been soaked and used as an applicator?

How about another train?

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


How about another train?This design is from The Great All-American Wooden Toy Book by Norman Marshall.The 1st engine was built from English maple and ended up quite heavy, I didn't want kids getting a concussion from one of my toys. Nothing can ruin your reputation as a toy maker the the two words “blunt instrument”. So out of my shop stock came the pine and cedar to build another engine and the cars you see. This is the only version with store bought wheels. For convenience you can't beat them, but even though I end up standing at my drill press for hours the shop made wheels look much better. This was given to a school and since has added a box car, ore wagon and tanker. I've got to stop typing, my “wheel drilling” cramp is starting up again!
