  • Child's Name Train

    Finally finished my Granddaughters train. Engine and Caboose made from untreated 2x4, the rest from Aspen. Cut partially on the band saw and some with a scroll saw. Letters are 2 1/2 " high, overall length is 39". Paint is non-toxic.

    Now I've got no projects in work. So...I'm creating a fretwork pattern I call "Courting Tigers." I really like the idea so I hope the pattern meets my expectations.

    That's a great looking train, Mike, and a great idea. Now I know what to make my nephew for his birthday!

          Very nicely done, Mike - i wish someone had made one of those for me when i was a kid - though the train would have been a lot shorter

                  That's adorable.

                  If I already didn't have something in mind for my niece and nephew for their birthdays, I just might have had to make one for them.

                    I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...

                    Skimming through this post, I came across 1 response to Quartz and one to Bill Wilson as PMs from Kelly, a new editorial assistant, regarding our comments. Here is my 2 cents regarding the copying. To understand what we mean, please take the issue with the sword fish on the front and copy that on a...

                    I want to say I’ve seen the pattern before but can’t remember where. I’ll have to try searching the SSWC article index to see if it was in the magazine (although previous searches haven’t been too successful for me in the index)....

                    It really isn’t that bright when you see them. I want to paint the rose and vine and leaves but he’s skeptical since I always say I hate to paint. I can actually paint just don’t like to that much. I think a dark red at the center of the rose graduating to a lighter shade on the outer edges and...
