I was thinking about occasionally posting ideas
for doting grandparents who like to make ‘Stuff’ for the grandchillin’
My little(6yrs) guy expects something waiting for him every visit.
If not, I must make something right before his eyes.
I recieved a request for a secure enclosure for his
‘walluble’ collection of baseball cards.
I made him a lunchbox sized aluminum safe
complete with a combination dial and a real lock
To make it REALLY secure, I embellished it with
(Count em.. 141 rivets)and I locked the combination inside,
just to fire up his natural imagination ( And his ire as well)
Since he has been taking Karate lessons, I also made him
a U shaped open box and a ton of rectangular cedar shingles
cut to fit across it, so he can split each of them in one chop.
With the ‘Package’, comes a white woolen glove
(Decorated with oriental charactors )
fitted with a hidden lead strip sewn in to
better assist his tiny hand and much larger sense of power
