So, what happens when your sister in law has an orchid passion as well? (referring to my other blog post about orchid green houses) Your wife will ask you to build a green house for your sister in law. And what do we do? We build the green house, of course! And we like it that way! The requirements were slightly different this time. The idea was to keep the green house more open, as opposed to have it fully covered in netting. The featured image is actually a screen…

Jacob’s Ladder Toy

A Jacob’s ladder toy is a trip down memory lane for me. It’s probably the first toy I ever made with wood. I think I was 10 years old maybe, which indicates the difficulty level of this project. ๐Ÿ˜‰ A Jacob’s Ladder is a fun toy for children because it’s easy to use and it baffles the mind, frankly. It’s been a while since I saw one up close, so I have to think a bit to re-understand the workings again ๐Ÿ™‚ <place for a video> So, about 30 years…
