  • 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!

                  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 built my own CNC router and used a full size router. Those little machines don't have enough travel in the Z axis for adding the 4th axis fixture. At some point round stock will enter into the equation so you need to have room for the rotary fixture.

                    Work in Progress. What is with FOX publishing?
                    by keystonecop

                    The Black walnut version was cut from a pattern from Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. That cutting was published in Scroll Saw woodworking and crafts magazine.

                    36mm. Bruce ordered the wrong size Forstner bit a few years ago and in his boredom this what he made with it.
