What if two people guess the correct weight of the HotRod Ford at the 50th ReunionWhat if two people guess the correct weight of the HotRod Ford at the 50th Reunionhttps://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/419898That was the question from the old shipmate who was organizing the fund raiser!SIMPLE – I'll make another prize for the the Guessing Competition!I put on my thinking cap and came up with a prize that would have a wider appeal, a Christmas Sleigh & Reindeer.
I had the templates and a beautiful piece of Camphor Laurel for the sides plus a length of laminated Walnut for the centre section. The reindeer would be made from some Tallow Wood complete with a Blood Wood nose.So with Handy's assistance the sleigh and reindeer was done.
Three coats of my homemade wipe-on-poly and the Second Prize is sorted!

Bunk beds with trundle beds Just finished building these bunks for a very time sensitive job. I wasn't keen on the initial design but with some minor tweaks made it work. The designer and home owner wanted the ladder incorporated into the end frames, to save floor space. The beds will be painted and ready for the summer, then I will add Vertical T&G wainscoting to the walls, solid middle panels, and ceilings. Upholstered, head and side panels will also be added. The safety rail will be removed and a custom iron rail will be installed. It was a fun project for the shop and field. You can see I had to jack up the ceiling to install, and the beds are now somewhat structural.
