"GET READY FOR FATHERS' DAY" PRESENTATION. - GIGGLE ... SMASH A THUMB

Spike will be giving a "Get ready for Fathers' Day" presentation, Thursday, May 30th at the River Falls Library (in conjunction with Chapter2Books) at 7:00 pm. Everyone's (kids, too) invited.

                            

Spike will talk about why kids are a lot like 2x4s, read a few segments from his books on fatherhood, and help anyone that's interested build a simple Fathers' Day gift (The Houdini WIne Bootle rack).

                                  

He'll jaw about his new "Building Unique & Useful Kids' Furniture Book" and, well, you never know what might happen.

THE "THING" — It's SPRING! Time to rock & roll

The THING is for spring. Kids can rock on it, climb over it, play under it and let their imaginations soar. Complete instructions right here, right now. 

"Houdini" levitating wine bottle holder

This may perhaps be the simplest gift project of all time. You need 1 x 6 x 12" board, drill, jigsaw and about 1/2 hour of time (maybe a little more on your first one.) Instead of giving just a bottle of wine, give a magical bottle!
