Nice Job. Give your girl a little paint and let her really personalize it. Then let her use it and give it back to her in another 20 years.

here is a utilitarian wine rack I made to use for storage in the closet where we keep the stockpile of wine.

the handle on the machete I had was cheap plastic which eventually failed last year so I made one from some rough cut oak I had picked up with some edge slabs from the sawmill.

Thanks guys

I like that machete handle.

I made the handle to fit my hand. It is thicker than the orginal, but I think it will work well.

I do do a little woodwork or did until last August when the flood hit. My shop is in storage till I get a new shop built.
Your doing good work Chuck! And there is no substitute for the shop time spent with your children(or in my case my wife enjoys woodworking too)! Enjoy it children grow up way too fast. But you will cherish the memories forever!
One suggestion get some kind of vice on that childs bench even if for no other reason than blocks moving around on the bench could be a safety hazard.
And a Vice is a fun toy too! I have several.

I've been working in the shop the last few days. Needed a couple of small folding tables to hold photo books at tractor shows. I have one of these I made several years ago out of redwood, these are from unknown lumber from an old house that was torn down 50 years ago. Boards had been used more than once in between times. I ripped & planned them down for thickness, then ripped & cut to size. Sanded & drilled. Today I put them together, will partially dismantle for a semi-gloss Spar varnish. ~~ grnspot
