I just watched a really cool episode of B. Original on DIY! It's normally on Mondays, but we DVR it. :) Anyway, the segment I really loved was on making a wooden alphabet swing toy. you know, the frame with blocks of letters/pictures that spin/swing? So cool! I haven't done any wood working since the 6th grade, but would be willing to try this! That is, if I can't convince my Mom to do it. :) she's an amazing carpenter! I'll have to post the cart/riding toy she made Angelo for his birthday!
here's the link to the instructions.
