    ebygomm – I’ve seen many sock puppet type toys at a few craft fairs, however yours really are well made and I too would like one.
    the tortoise is realy lovely.

    technically anything sold as a toy in the uk has to meet ce standards, not feasible to carry out the testing required for handmade things

    I made a long shoulder-level shelf for my garage which replaced a shelving unit ‘transforming the space’. I am still excited about what is effectively a new room. I will post pics when I get home.

    I’m building a new bike – a sort of dream bike with a only few compromises.

    Don’t want it as a toy. I consider it an objet

    Last thing I successfully made was a foetus just before Christmas.
    Well, I didn’t actually make it, I just supplied a small ingredient 🙂

    Aracer, that looks far too neat compared to the ones we used to build.

    Nice transition though, looks sweet for popping a few ollies off 🙂

    It’s actually a lot more basic than what I found on Instructables! Birthday present for my 5yo son, before he injured himself using bits of wood on bricks.

    Jamie – Very nice indeed. Manual’d or CNC’d?

    All manual. I have a cnc, but for a one off it’s quicker on the manuals.

    quick and dirty freewheel tool to get a white industries freewheel off. the bought one didn’t work, the dogs didn’t quite line up properly and it kept slipping off.

    idea is you take the axle out and the ‘boss’ bit goes in the id of the freewheel and helps keep it concentric. worked perfectly. rough looking finish because i had to handball a radius on a manual machine by turning x and y handles at the same time – couldn’t be bothered to program the cnc for a one off!

    I made the driver of this Nissan Patrol rather embarrassed when he realised the person out of our group who had the snatch strap was driving what he termed ‘a toy 4wd’. Needless to say, I wasn’t particularly gentle yanking him out…

    Not sure it really counts as making anything, but I thought it was manly enough to qualify

    Just repaired the aerial on my car using a multi-tool and some Sugru. Got to love formable silicone, got to hate lugging kayaks onto a roof rack.

    And for a contribution to my own thread, a gate to prevent Toddler North escaping down the side of the house.

    Must creosote it and the (40 year old elm) fence. When it STOPS RAINING!

    I made our current kitchen…well ripped out the old one and fitted the new one.

    Should have taken pictures of before and during…ripping out the old one practically destroyed the kitchen walls. Wouldn’t notice it now…given that the only things I make at work a poorly thought out and inapproproate jokes during meetings, I was quite please with myself.

    Maybe I should take a picture of me in the kitchen
    looking smug.

    When I was at college doing engineering I made a pressure air driven piston out of aluminium, it produced the highest RPM. Haven’t got any pictures of that, but I think the college should have put it in the trophy cabinet in the main reception…they refused though.

    No impressive machining skills were required for this (in fact I displayed no skill when making it whatsoever)and it is functional rather than impressive but I felt quite pleased with what I could do with a cheap fork clamp and a bit of old fence post:

    Fits in the back of the car lovely and appears to work OK.

    Last thing I made was either a Lego car or a Lego tank last night, both as simple as poss. to show junior how Lego sued to be before they had all the custom shapes, and how imagination works wonders.

    No photos as he took them both apart for his next project.
