  • Bragging of a different sort

    I am president of the Jax Woodworkers Club and this last Saturday we had our annual toy giveaway. We have 65 members and they made over 1900 toys for ten sevice organizations here in Jacksonville that deal with children. One of our members is 91 and he made 70 toys. The photo shows just a sampling of the toys.

    That's great. The toys are sure to brighten the eyes of a few youngsters this Christmas. It's nice to see there are still good people in the world.

            What a wonderful thing to do, It looks like your group worked very hard to make a lot of children happy.

              That is a lot of toys and a lot of work towards a good cause. You and the others are to be commended - just show's how a relatively small number of people can make a difference to a lot of people - very inspiring ..

                  I'm going to show this to our club. We have 110 members and made just over 700 toys this year. Two years ago we did over 1600 and Midwest Living did a short article about us last year. Need to get a fire lit under our guys.

                  There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

                    First off how thick is the board you cut?
                    When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                    that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                    for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                    I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                    Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                    Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

                    I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
