This is a pretty easy project that complements Marilyns place/recipe card project. The idea is to make lots of these for gifts when people come for brunch or dinner. The holder can be used for table place setting and then later for a recipe card holder.
One of the more awkward things to handle around the shop is big sheets of plywood. With my bad shoulder it is almost impossible but with this handy plywood carrying device its a breeze. Put the plywood in the notch, pick it up with the handle and balance the top with your other hand. Now that is a lot better than the alternative!
Picnic time is coming soon and eating outside is always fun. One thing about eating outside that is not fun is when the napkins blow all over the place. This handy napkin holder will prevent that from happening and looks nice too.

I know it seems a little late for toys but just because Christmas is over does not mean that there are not some little kids out there with birthdays. This pickup toy truck would make a great gift for that special child that likes real toys, if you know what I mean. Nothing nicer than a hand made toy.
Well ring my bell! This is a really simple wind chime project that you will get lots of enjoyment out of. Not only is it fun to make but fun to listen to when the wind blows.
This project is a Three-fer project. You get three for the price of one. We are going to make a place card for the dinner table, a Christmas tree ornament and a coaster. This is really simple and just in time for that Christmas dinner or party.
I love projects like this because it cost me almost nothing. I made this planter all from scraps that I had lying around. Cedar fence scraps made up the bulk of it.
It is time to get out in the wood shop and start making those great Holiday gifts for your kids and grand kids. This weeks project is simple and yet will give hours of pleasure to that special little someone in your life. A waddling duck push toy.
This is a wonderful way to show your summer flowers around your deck. These planters are easy to build and can be made from scrap wood. Like many of our projects you easily make them to fit your situation. We made our planter to fit a long narrow plastic planter and go over a 2 X 6 ft deck rail.
