If this little pony and cart are to be played with in the house you can make it the size marked in Fig. 102 but if it is to be used out-of-doors then you should make it twice the size.
The reason I was attracted to this project was a lifelong appreciation for wood and the simpler times when craftsmen hewed logs into log cabins and also to log cabin furniture. With a few simple tools, they made what they needed with what they had.
This easy toolbox is handy for use in both the garden and the workshop. It makes a great gift for Dad especially if filled with tools.

The workbench in ShopNotes No. 102 (page 24) offers a lot of storage space on the shelf underneath. To make better use of that space for storing smaller items, you can build this drawer cabinet. This alternate design option is available to download in this Online Extra. This project appeared in ShopNotes Issue 102.
Patterned after a workbench found in wood shops at the turn of the 20th century, this traditional-style bench has it all. And it starts with the work surface. The large top provides plenty of room to work on any project. The solid-wood top also features a large face vise and shop-built tail vise. And there is plenty of storage underneath with or without the optional drawers. Classic details, like the shop-made car siding and trim molding, add to the appeal. This video highlights the construction and features of the project. This project appeared in ShopNotes Issue 102.
