While this is not really a review per se, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my thanks for a great product that I enjoy everyday. I just recently was able to get back into my shop and was very pleased to find out that this summer brought an offering from Field Notes, purveyors of fine notebooks (and other goodies).
Today marked the first day back in the shop for a long while. A friend of mine gave me a couple of drivers he had left over complete with crossovers, and also the dimensions for a Radio Shack “Minimus 7″ sized enclosure. After picking up some 1/4″ MDF from the “Depot”, I proceeded to cut out the speaker enclosures.
So I had lent my kidwash to my son’s school last year for their “splash day” and it was a hit. So this year, I received a request to build an additional 2 for use at the school for their summer camp.
So we decided to make a jetpack for our son. My wife and I had looked around for some ideas, but haven’t found anyone that had made a jetpack, nor could you really buy one.
So my wife decided she liked a doll stroller that one of her friends had, and asked me to make her a replica. So we took a trip to Home Depot and got some supplies. A little bit of poplar, some 7/8″ dowels, and some bolts with lock nuts and washers. Instant doll stroller for my daughter (well, after 1 day of woodworking of course).
(or for twenty-six dollars, how to create wet fun for everyone)
So, after finding a very cool Instructable, I decided to hop on down to the local Home Depot. I picked up everything on the instruction list.
I’ve been commissioned by Woody to build a nice set of adirondack chairs for his covered porch. Pine ended up as the wood selection due to its wide availability, and also that it would be used in a covered porch setting.
After much deliberation about what we were going to do with the backyard, it was decided that we were going to build a sandbox. My wife had found some plans for a boat shaped sandbox plan in a book, and we thought it would encourage many hours of play and fun. I remember my first sandbox that my dad made for me in our backyard.
So my wife had this horridly ugly metal chair that we received a while back from friends of ours. It had a plastic covered upholstered seat. My wife had tried her best to make it look better by recovering it, but it just looked bad. It came with an equally ugly ottoman.
