2015 Makers Care Entries


An airplane on a lathe while not impossible.. would be tough! A UFO on the other hand lends itself quite nicely! A few alterations and it is good to go! So here is one for the kids! Big or small! Way to go Steve ;>) Larry

Alberto Centurion. I'm a father of two from North Carolina, am a novice woodworker and like making stuff. I really like papercraft and thought this was a great opportunity to make something with my kids. I made this plane from a plan I found online, printed on cardstock, a straw and a skewer. I glued it all together with wood glue since the bottle was already handy.

Archana Satyamurthy. I am Archana. I am a homemaker. I had lots of free time, so my nerdy husband got me Legos. I build a plane based on the picture mentioned in the manual. I would like to thank my nerdy husband who gave this idea. I feel really nice doing this. And here it is. :-)

Matt. I can't wait to give my little wooden airplane to my toddler! Made of some scrap 3/4 pine. Steve, I very much enjoy what you do, and I will support this charity as much as possible. You have done some amazing things in the woodworking community, all while humbly using equipment that the average weekender can manage acquiring. Thanks again for the information and entertainment over the years! Matt Savannah, GA
