Jeff has always liked to tinker, with wood, with metal, with plaster, it doesn't matter. He took art in school and can do pretty much anything. He has a Shopsmith but didn't really have room to do much with it in the little red barn, but a few months ago he had a bigger shop built and he has been setting it up and "playing".
Look what he brought in to me a couple weeks ago.
It is a little jack knife made out of wood. It even has the different colors like a real one.
He even put that little gouge thing on the "blade" to open it.
Isn't it cute? It just sits on my desk. You could use it as a letter opener.
So Eric plays with these toys/figurines/computer people called Skylanders, and he has like over 60 of them and they were all over his room, on his dresser, in the closet, on his tv stand. So we looked around to find some sort of shelf for them and couldn't find one, so Jeff used his handy dandy Shopsmith and his amazing brain that can just figure stuff out, and made this…
Pretty snazzy eh? Of course it is filled, and Eric says he needs another one…ha!
Well this is a quick non-stamping post, but I just had to brag about my hubby.
Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping in.

wow, he is very clever…. I loved the knife. I think my hubby carries the real thing in his pocket. I'd prefer yours, I would be so inclined to cut myself…. and any man that make shelves, is truly a godsend….lol. My craft room is just full of them… yep, you must keep him or share him….LOL…
These are wonderful items. Jeff really is very talented and I'm glad he is getting to enjoy his new space! I don't blame you for bragging on him at all!
Looks like Jeff is having fun, too, and how nice to hear you saying such wonderful things about your hubby; of course, you always do but it's nice to hear anyhow! Stay warm! Brrrr…..
Soooo much talent in one family, you and hubby compliment each other so well with your creaetive projects and interests. Always enjoy your postings, you are so open and honest. I want one of those cubby hole units Jeff made Eric, don't know why, but it is so neat.
Di, the Skylanders storage system is awesome! My daughter is a junior in HS and loves the game. She plays on her Xbox (that she saved up for to buy for herself). Her Skylanders figurines are now barely fitting on a little phone table we have near the TV. Had to show her Eric's collection in your post. Her comment was, 'Wow! He's got a lot!' I think you just have my husband a job to do out in the shop! 🙂
I am just in awe…that skylander display has to be one of the coolest things. It would be so neat to be able to buy something like that to put in each of my kid's rooms. Kids collect so many things over the year that could be displayed. Right now my daughter is in gymnastics. She has a few medal holders, but at the rate she is going, I have to think of a long-term better way to display all her medals. If your hubby can think of anything brilliant, please send me an email!
