Our latest fave from Joel: these fantastic sand combs that are fun for people of all ages. Joel doesn't take credit for coming up with this idea, but we're giving him full props for firing us up to make some of our own. Best of all, he says that they're pretty easy to make.
Joel wrote about this project on his blog:
The wood I used is just a thin plywood. You can find small sheets of it at lumber stores, and it cuts very easy, even with a hand coping saw. Then another secret ingredient (well it's not a secret) is an awesome food grade bees wax polish by Three BEEautiful Bees. I use it on almost all of my wood toys for kids. You can buy it here. One jar lasts a very long time, and you can just rub it on with your fingers (It's great for the skin too) and it seals the wood very well.
