I made Simon a giraffe pull toy on wheels for him to play with. The main part is all spray painted plywood. I cut it out using a jig saw and just followed a simple line drawing I made on the piece of wood.
I masked the whole thing off with masking tape and cut out some shapes to paint for the spots.
The wheels were 3d printed and press fit on to a dowel. The dowel can spin where it crosses through the legs, but it is still a little tight and doesn’t roll that great yet.
Amanda and I built a simple box for a raised garden bed. Its about 8x4ft and 12in tall. It held a lot of dirt. We bought 1 yard from the local city compost place and it took almost all of the dirt to fill it.
We used this guys design from his youtube video. It’s really just a big box with some 2×4 rails on top.
The little plants need to grow a little more before being moved.
I was wanting a small bowl to put my spoon on for when I make coffee in the mornings. I had a scrap oak board and used the angle grinder with a sand flap disk to carve out a long shallow bowl. I finished it with tung oil and it is working well.
A different type of wood or with a closed grain would work better I think, but since this doesn’t see much use it will do.
The angle grinder took out most of the material, I used a belt grinder to smooth the flats, and then hand sanded with 220 grit sandpaper.
