Hey!  Stumbled across this form while looking for bandsaw or scroll saw plans.  I haven't actually *made* any wood toys just yet, most of my stuff has been more decorative, but I plan on changing that up somewhat.  I'm currently working on a couple of little wall-hangar projects for my daughter's room, and hope to get to working on some Model T cars or something similar.


Yeah, my wife gives me a hard time about cleaning up my workbench, too...but a clean workbench is like a clean computer desk:  unused.

Is a cool name, Ed!  Of course, I'm the guy who refers to the parking spot at work with the number 451 as the "hot spot".  Only one other person has gotten it so far.  I also found the fact that spot 229 is "compact", doubly ironic because I work for D. R. Horton (Germany's Horton 229 flying wing).


Here's the final results of the pegacorn pics.  Had to make the frames (used some furring strips, they were cheap and I already had enough for one and a half of the frames...they also make really good braces on the back of wooden fencepost flags, so I keep one or two on hand), re-verified that my table saw doesn't really cut at a 45-degree angle, and had a lot of fun with the project.  Judging by the grin...I think my daughter likes em.

Oh, added bonus:  I even managed to hang them straight enough that I didn't have any do-overs when the wife came to inspect.  That, my friends, warrants a frosty adult beverage.
