Adjustable Baby/Toddler High Chair by Ian Hemphill
I designed and built this adjustable baby/toddler high chair for my grandson’s first birthday. I repurposed some old ikea barrel bolts that I had kept kicking around, so that opening the sides to reposition the seat and footrest as he grows is easy, and the chair can be taken apart and stored flat when he grown out of it, waiting for HIS children. Or, it’s strong enough that I can replace the seat and footrest with steps for use as a kitchen stepladder when he grows out of it. The nuts for the barrel bolts are epoxied in place and covered with plugs,so they will never get lost, and the hex-wrench has a special home in one of the legs so that you never have to go looking for it. White oak side frames and red oak seat and back. It took a mashup of all the techniques that I’ve learned from Paul over the last few years, but it was tremendously satisfying! Hand tools rule 😊.

Saw Handle Reshaping by Ermir Agaci
I reshaped the handle of the S&J tenon saw. No saw screws available, so I worked with the blade on. Amazing how some hours of rasp, file and sand paper work transform an ugly and uncomfortable handle. The saw works better now that it is a Spear & Jackson & Sellers.

Spoon by Daniel Majul
