Price For An Eight Foot 1x6 Poplar Board At Lowe'sFor me, the big box stores are Lowe's and Home Depot. "Big Blue" and "Big Orange."The lighting is poor, and many of the price tags are located where you need to get down on the floor with a flashlight to read them. The stock is often in the wrong bin or mislabeled, with the wood prices as high as they are now. I don't want any surprises when I get to the checkout. I want to know how much it's going to cost me before I load my cart.While…

In The Toymakers Shop - Handmade Wood Alligator Family Stacking Puzzle

Alligator Family Stacking Puzzle Ready For Sanding And Finishing I made this in my toymakers shop using traditional woodworking tools. I cut the puzzle from 3/4-inch thick poplar using a scroll saw. After sanding, I will finish it with a shop-made blend of mineral oil and beeswax. The alligator puzzle is one of a series of stacking animal family puzzles I have in production. They will all be for sale in my Etsy shop when they are completed. Puzzles…

Using Tape To Prevent Wood Burning When Cutting Cherry and Other Hardwoods With A Scroll Saw

Dragon Patterns Attached to Wood Covered With Blue Tape Etsy Shop https://odinstoyfactory.etsy.com According to Patrick Spielman, silicon on or in the tape keeps the tape from sticking together. The silicon gets on the saw blade as it passes through the tape and provides lubrication. He writes about this in one of his books, where he shows photos of cherry cut with and without the tape. The cherry burns when it is cut without the tape. I suspect that all tapes are not created equal, which…

Etsy Listing https://www.etsy.com/listing/668860519/ I made the pictured toy dinosaur body from two layers of oak. The legs are ash or hickory, and I'm not sure which. Grandkids that are into dinosaurs love these. I make ten dinosaurs in this series. The complete set of all the dinosaurs is available here. I also have a set that includes only the three baby dinosaurs. This set is available here. Both sets are made to order and are available via custom order in ant combination. Other Items…

Handmade Wooden Toy Car Hot Rod 1932 Ford Sedan Hot Rod Freaky Ford Orange Black - 536462157

I make these toy hot rod cars in my toymakers shop using traditional woodworking tools. The 1.5-inch thick body is cut using a scroll saw. I could probably come up with a method to do this with a band saw, but cutting is with the scroll saw, and a #5 reverse tooth blade makes a much smoother cut that requires minimal sanding compared to the cut I can get a bandsaw. The bandsaw cuts fast but requires you to cut outside the line and then sand to the line. Etsy Listing…

Etsy Listing https://www.etsy.com/listing/536462157/ This toy car is handmade from natural wood for adults or kids. It is a sturdy, durable toy made for play but nice enough for any decor. I am offering this hot rod at a discount due to slight damage to the paint. The paint has wrinkles on it the surface but is otherwise undamaged. The toy functions perfectly and has no other defects. From a distance, you can't tell there is anything wrong with it. These are great gifts. Use them to decorate…

 A few years ago, I bought some heavy-duty wire shelving to use for my aquariums and storage. The weakest part of these shelves is the spindle casters. The shelves I bought will support 1200 pounds but not with the wheels attached. The spindle casters that come with the shelving will not support that kind of weight. So I had all these large spindle casters getting in my way that I wanted to use for something.  After several bouts of research, I figured out that I can buy steel mou

This stacking puzzle is part of a large puzzle project that includes 50 puzzles. Twentytwo puzzles are replacements for sold-out stock, and the rest are all new to me, animal family stacking puzzles. I had to modify the hedgehog pattern to get the puzzle to stand up. With the right piece of wood, it might balance on its own, but I had to flatten the bottom using a belt sander to get the mother hedgehog from rolling over and dumping all the baby hedgehogs on the table.  This puzzle is a litt

 My grandson was interested in airplanes, so I told myself how hard it could be to make a simple toy airplane from scratch. I did not have a simple plan or pattern on hand and made my own; this was my first attempt.I used a cheap styrofoam glider we had laying around that was about the right size for my purpose. I traced the shapes onto a thin piece of wood and cut out the parts using a scroll saw.Getting the wing and stabilizer slots cut was a bit of a challenge. Marking the location wasn'

Handmade Wooden Toy Wooly Mamoths After visiting the Florida Museum of Natural History, my grandson developed a fascination for mammoths after seeing their skeleton. He gave me marching orders that I was to make him a mammoth for his birthday. Fortunately, I had a pattern in one of John Lewman's books I had purchased. These patterns presented me with several small challenges.The patterns were in color. I prefer simpler patterns with plain black or red lines and no shading. I find these much

Water CleanupFor me the greatest advantage to using the acrylics to paint wooden toys is the use of water for a solvent. About as non toxic as you can get and nearly free.
