You can take it with you if you move and give it to the kids for there children.

Building foot stools

Cutting all the pieces out.

Following the lines I cut out the gear teeth with a bandsaw

Children's Growth Rulers

It's as easy to make a dozen as it is to make one once the tooling is set up.

A gear driven candy dispenser

First I make a drawing and then glue it into the board and drill the holes.

             Making Gears 

 Before I bought my new CNC machine.

I us a drum sander to sand off the glued on paper pattern. 

I made a jig for my router to cut the indentations for the inch and foot marks.

Then a few coats of clear polyurethane to finish the project with "No Gaps"

After they are glued and screwed together I cut plugs to cover the screw holes.

Segmented turning blanks

I made a jig for the router to cut the legs at the proper angle.

Before the CNC

My wonderful grand kids

Instead of spray painting numbers on using a stencil, I use custom vinyl lettering like you see on so many cars and trucks. Using this medium I can also put on more than just numbers like; Watch Us Grow, Love Grows Here, Our Growing Family, As Love Grows, Loved Beyond Measure and so on.

I sand the edges of the teeth with a belt sander.

I built a Sphere turning tool

For the final touch I use my oscillating spindle sander to smooth everything out.
