    Future Project suggestion. What ever the next project may be. I would love for you to do a in-depth scaled drawing and scaled model. I find this is a skill that I'm lacking in. I tend to just jump into a project and spend more time fixing mistakes and redesigning. You touched base on this a few times before but never in-depth.

    HI Ivy, I did that when we designed the portable tool cabinet in the Hand tool workshop.  We made a scale model, then made an inexpensive full size model out of rough plywood.  This is the way I work, our current tool cabinet is a mock up.  We also made a model of the dining table.  cheers

    Hello Rob/ fellow members.

    For woodworkers, Christmas season is just around the corner. I would like to make a suggestion for a future project, a child’s rocking horse. I am sure that there are many grandparents out there and a gift of a rocking horse for a grandson or granddaughter would be a big hit this Christmas. I am presently making one myself for my grandson, I started pretty early but I have to ship it across country so I want to leave myself enough time. I have made several over the years and they are always enjoyed by the child and the parents alike. It is something that the child will be able to pass on to his/her children in the future. I start with the same basic pattern but always change something during the build. It can be made by any skill level, using any type of wood available. It can made more complicated with the addition of inlays and different joinery.

    Also, another big plus is that there is never an issue with buying new tools if it’s for a grandchild project.

    Anyway, just a suggestion.

    Cheers, Mario.
