  • Country Wheelbarrow Stand Up Puzzle

    Just can't resist designing a new puzzle when I see something that looks like it needs to come out of the wood. Here's a nice little country wheelbarrow with "flowers" being carried to their planting spot. I cut it from 3/4" pine as usual and was going to leave it unfinished, but flowers need some color, so I mixed washes of acrylic paint and dabbed the flower parts of the puzzle. The rest I simply shellacked. I wonder how the wheelbarrow would be in red? Maybe I'll give it a try or perhaps one of you might like to test this out. In any event I hope you enjoy the project.

          You've got some great puzzles Al...!!!!
          I did the watering can for my landlord recently. She's an avid gardener and it was well received.
          I guess I'm gonna have to make this one for her or her husband. He's an even more gifted gardener. He can take a dead stick and bring to life.

          Thanks're a very generous designer....

                    Very clever! I don't know why I don't ever think about things like that.

                      by Bill Wilson
                      I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                      Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                      And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                      Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....

                      I've been creating patterns for about 6 years, but I still haven't had any Easter patterns. And here is my first one - Easter Bunny. I plan to make more this year.
