Thanks lads, proud of him myself, pleased the kids have taken an interest in "hacking" things together with whatever is to hand.

 

Can't find his works in progress pictures so heres one of what's left of the blank he started with to give an idea of how it's done. Glued up contrasting strips of wood then cut out rings with the band-saw (table set at 45 degrees) the rings stack one on top of other with very little waste.

Couple more pics in my hand to give idea of completed size.

Daughter has been doing a bit of flower pressing but complained the bought press she has is too small and only does a few flowers at a time. A rummage in the threaded rod department of the shed and a tad of welding later we came up with this solution. Takes A4 card and paper.

No shortage of pressed flowers now for her cards & crafts!

Thanks again lads.

 

Made these with the boys a couple of years back, thought they may be of interest. They did most of the work with close supervision and a bit of help from dad. :thumbs: Designs came from a book "Tremendous Toy Trucks" They pestered me for a while to help them make one. I fobbed them off with if you go and draw out the plans i will give you a hand, thinking that would be the last of that. Two days later came back to me with all the templates scaled up and hand drawn :huh:
