Even More Gifts From Santa's Workshop

As far as giving enough time to build, we are starting to run out of time for this Xmas. Here are a couple of more children's projects, that might be just the thing for a child this Xmas.

Everyone is familiar with the "Sunset" DIY books. They published hundreds of titles over the last 40 years on every aspect of woodworking projects and home improvements. Here are a couple of projects from one of their volumes titled "Children's Furniture". It was published in 1985.

For the first project, I don't know a child that wouldn't be over the moon, to tuck in at night on this project. This race-car bed is styled after the famous Can-Am racers, and sports some authentic detailing. It's a long project with lots of cuts to complete, but it is not a difficult project to complete. I am sure the time taken will be rewarded with many woops of satisfaction.





The second set of projects today have been visited a number times before. Few children from toddler to the age of 4 or 5 can resist a ride on a rocking horse (or other favorite animal). I have posted a number of plans before, here are a couple more. The lion is a quick easy project, and brings back memories of last Sundays, rocking horse post. The horse is very detailed but surprisingly there is no carving involved, all the cuts can be made on your band saw, even the comfortable looking seat.




I included a page from "Wood" magazine on how to enlarge gridded patterns here. Instructions apply to all gridded patterns, and some may find this useful.

So the Patriots are putting up a good fight so far against the NY Jets today. The Gronk is back, if he manages to play out the rest of the season, the future might be looking up for Brady and the Patriots.

For Canadians they are playing for the Grey Cup later today in Edmonton, Go Ottawa Red-Blacks go.
