    I thought I had all the demensions but every time I find I mist something I have to go into the house and measure it, she won't let me have it back.

    Once I get a coat of finish on it, I'll take a picture of her in it. That is if she''l let me have it long enough to finish.

    Jiggs Puzzle rocker - small gloat

    Enjoy!! I just wish I was fortunate enough to have grandchildren, I'd love to see their faces and smiles.

    By the way don't take this wrong but are you aware that if you were to print those files full size they are the full size pattern. Just trace them out on the stock and cut.

    What a deal. Good show men.

    I have gotten the connector and key printed out full size on 3 sheets of paper and taped together. I may try and get some more done over the weekend. Next week is all tied up with Thanksgiving and such.

    I didn't bother with the radius's on the top. Just use whater paint/varnish cans you got laying around.

    Jiggs Puzzle rocker - small gloat + the plans

    Hey Don, That's FANTASTIC - can't wait for the rest of the parts so I can go make one.

    Hope your serious about the picture, I'm looking forward to it.

    Oh I guess I forgot to tell everyone based on what I've been told by people that have these, they have problems getting the kids to relinquish them.

    Another problem is that once they learn to take them apart, but haven't learn to put them back together, they will take it apart and beg, cry and yell for you to put it back together. Then approximately 2 minutes later the cycle starts all over.

    Another hint, make extra keys. They seem to disappear. They seem to fit perfectly through the grates on floor registers.
