« Part 269: Scratch build Steam Train Cow Catcher Part 270 of Toy Construction series Part 271: Triceratops »

Got hold of David Wakefield’s toy making book,
I bought one back in the 1980’s when it first came out and
put my new Shop Smith band saw throw the works, building his toys.
I found his book on Ebay for like $6 with shipping so hit the buy button.

Still have to get the cams in the right places and nail everything down but it’s getting there. :-]
His mouth goes up and down and he has a mean looking wobble as he rolls around.

Here’s two that I built way back that have survived for 35 years.

Holy crap! Bruce, I had one of those dogie toys when I was a kid. Talk about bringing up the past. Great Job.
