Plans For Kids Push Toys And A Porch Swing
I've got another 2 plans for you to download today. They include plans from Ted's "Wooden Crafts" as well asTed's "Outdoor Collection" series. These are great projects to work with and I hope you have fun building them!
OLD FASHIONED PUSH TOYS
An oldie but goodie. This classic plan of ours features old fashioned push-along toys that sadly kids do not get a chance to play much these days.
O doll to kiss, a doll to cuddle—at some time or other, most of us have sought the cozy, clinging comfort of a toy doll. Running Rosy is something more than a doll.
She's a sort of doll in a hurry, the perfect push-along-thecarpet plaything for younger kids. This is a beautiful plaything, a real delight for kids and adults alike. She's strong, easy to make, nicely rounded for "learning" hands.
But, best of all, her wheel-turning movement is just right for active toddlers who like to push toys along the floor. If you are looking to make a unique toy for a unique kid, then this is the one.
Porch Swing For Your Yard Or Porch
Kick back and relax with this fun-to-build weekend project. The smooth, gentle glide of the porch swing will keep you daydreaming for hours.
This project is designed with a unique suspension system made from ordinary 1/2" black steel pipe (commonly used for gas piping). It slips through the swing frame to act as a cradle and to eliminate stress on wood joints.
Eyebolts are fastened through the steel pipe and covered by soft rubber caps to prevent accidental scrapes. The swing assembly is then supported with a welded steel chain that is securely fastened to solid framing in the porch roof.
In this intermediate-level project, you’ll gain experience in working with templates to make shaped pieces and doing some complex and precise assembly.
