Amish Made tricycle and trailers.

Rarely can you still find an old fashioned peddle ride on toy that will last for generations.

At one time a ride on peddle toy was the most popular outdoor toy.
Be it a peddle car, fire engine, or an old fashioned hand car, kids could spend hours as they were also building mussels and core strength.
As time progress the all plastic big wheel shoved the market to a cheaper alternative that often ended up in a landfill.
Absolutely no plastic parts in this peddle cart kit.
The cart kit also includes metal wheels, and ball bearings in the steering and drive shaft.
A Perfect project for a grandparent who loved these type of projects but may only be able to paint and assemble now. There’s no cutting required.
Everything is cut and already glued together, including the seat made of ¾” wood and the horse made of ¾” laminated pine plywood.
Pony cart comes with the two wheel cart hitched to a wooden pony. The peddles not only connect to the drive shaft, but they also connect to the horse legs to simulate the horse trotting along as the child rides.
Pony cart is built in an Amish blacksmith shop and ships already assembled ready for paint, stain or varnish.
Cart is used by Amish children from the ages of 5 up to 11.
The cart and horse measures around 40” long, 24” wide and 18” high.
Surfaces are sanded smooth but may need a final sanding before finishing. Metal hardware will also need to be painted.
Pony cart is sold unfinished so that it can be painted, or stained and varnished to match a child’s image of their favorite pony.
This also means the finish can be hand selected for those who are concerned with what is in the finish.
The pony cart kit is only available online at Cottage Craft Works .com
Cottage Craft Works is a unique online back to basic general store that offers many wood working kits as well as complete finished products.
While 90% of the products come from within the Amish communities, other small American cottage based business products are also featured.

Like the pony cart kit, many of these products will be future family heirlooms.

Build An Heirloom Grandfather Clock Using These Pre-cut Clock Kits.

These pre-cut ready to assemble grandfather clocks will leave a stunning impression and a heirloom legacy.

Kits come complete with all the wood parts, beveled glass and a high quality German made 8-day triple chime movement.
The clock will chime with the three most popular chimes, Westminster, St. Michael and Whittington chimes.
No worry about keeping the household awake at night with an automatic night shut off.
You will need the carpentry and woodworking tools and basic knowledge of glue up the cabinet.
One of the secrets in glue up construction is to have a large assortment of wood working clamps to properly align and apply equal pressure across the glue joints.
The other key to a successful finish is to be sure all the excess glue squeezed from the joints if completely washed off the outside wooden parts.
Once excess glue dries it seals the wood and leaves blotch marks when the stain is applied.
Wood cabinet parts are made in the USA by skilled craftsman. Some minor small trim cutting may be required.
Keeping grandfather clock completely level is critical; the pendulum will not swing correctly to keep the proper time.
If the clock is tilted toward the front or back the pendulum may rub on the case and cause damage. The clock kits include leveling legs.
A locking door keeps helping hands from messing up the chain and weight system.
Two models are available; both have the option of oak or cherry.
The traditional St. Paul and St. John models have carved finial and keystone raised crotch top. The York and Nottingham models formal have tiered bonnet arched tops with raised book match panels.
Complete grandfather clock kits run $2000 in either oak or cherry. These clocks sold completely assembled would cost up to $4000.

Hunting | Waterfowl | Decoys | Tangle Free Riggings

Now imagine my fears working with decoys, rigging cords and weights

That makes me the official untangler! I spend hours sorting out the knots and kinks left after my husband tangles everything together.
It doesn't matter a ball of twine, fishing line, strings of Christmas lights, rope or extension cords he can put them away carefully, but when it comes time to use again just one pull out of the box and it’s a mess.
Now imagine my fears working with decoys, rigging cords and weights. Yea, the weights get wrapped around other lines, duck heads and who can imagine what else.
Now imagine how happy I was to find these tangle free rigging's made in the USA.
They are made heavy duty using a PVC coated cable that won’t crimp or stretch and best of all they won’t tangle together.
Traditional rigs are made using rope or monofilament line. As we know rope tangles and monofilament line acts like it has come into contact with a curling iron, twisting and curling around just about anything that it can.
Rope and nylon materials also absorb water and have to be replaced often when the fibers begin to break down.
You can throw the decoys in a bag with these rigging's attached, dump them at the edge of the water and pull one by one out free of tangles.
Picking them up after the hunt is great as well. Using the old rigging's keeping your hands out of the cold water was virtually impossible as you round up the decoys.
With these rigs you simply lift the decoy out of the water by its head and slip the rigging loop on to a “D” Ring clip.
You can hang them to dry using the “D” Ring and then just pick them up and drop them in a bag for the next outing.
They even come with a camo carrying bag.
The innovated rigging's have a slip lead that allows the decoy to automatically adjust to the water depth.
The rigs clip on to the decoy keel, there’s no knot tying needed. The strong cable will never rot or break so decoys don’t drift away.
The PVC coated cable also stays flexible even on cold days.
The standard 48” long rigs come packaged per dozen all made up and equipped with 4 oz teardrop weights.
Custom rigs can also be ordered shorter, longer, or with heavier weights.
A dozen rigs with the "D" Ring and camo bag will run you around $35. Not bad considering these are ready to snap and go.
Sorry guys this great idea is already Patent Pending.
Tangle Free Decoy rigs can be order at Cottage Craft Works .com
Cottage Craft Works is a full line back-to-basics general store with a large selection of American made gun accessories, hunting and outdoor gear.
