|Toy Train Set
Here's a train set that will inspire many young and perhaps even a few older imaginations.
At first glance the train set may seem like a lot of work. But don't be fooled. You'll discover that the train is designed around a simplified common chassis system, where all the cars except the locomotive share identical undercarriages.
In our part of the country (the Midwest), there are many variations of these simple candle holders. We give instructions for a five-candle holder, but you can vary the number of candles to suit your taste.
The holders are designed to take 1/2 inch diameter candles.
|Horse and Cart Toy
This whimsical Horse and Cart is always a big hit with the little folk.
It's a project you can easily complete in an afternoon, and best of all it doesn't require any special woodworking equipment.
You'll probably find most of the wood needed for this project in your scrap bin.
|Compact Disc Holder
Time and technology march on. Interestingly, the construction of this CD Holder is loosely based on an old and venerable design - a traditional Early American revolving bookcase.
As woodworking plans go, this is one that invites creativity. To keep the plan simple, the designer included just a simple wedge and chute along the gumball path, but there is plenty of room to innovate.
