A Toymakers sanity during Lockdown Isloation

Well ladies and gents what a very different few months we’ve had for sure.

Thank you to the folk who’ve checked up on me during this time, it’s been very much appreciated.

With the extra time for hibernating in the shed my darling wife suggested that I build up a stock of prizes, gifts and give aways [as this would help use up some of the timber stored under the house]

The little trucks are pretty well my own design with a couple of veneration.


Then the dragster is based on a Steve Good Scrollsaw design


The little Noddy Car is also based on a Steve Good Scrollsaw design.
My beloved liked this style, thus more I made more but with home made wheels.


The other cars are from a free pattern from Tony Slattery
https://www.wooden-toy-plans.com/
My daughter thought this style was great for little hand and thus a lot more.




I still have the Pull Along Block Spinners to finish; six in total.

And I’ve used up a whole lot of long thin offcuts to make Cheese Boards.
Coated with raw coconut oil this one has already been gifted.

All the timber is pretty well Aussie hardwoods, most recycled.

The finish is my home made Wipe-on-Poly of 30% Tung Oil + 40% Satin Clear Polyurethane + 30% Turps.

So ladies and gents, The lockdown isolation has been very productive and enjoyable…..
Best of all I have a ready stock of toys to give!!

Keep safe and well all..[plus warm if your in the Great South Land]

-- Lifes good, Enjoy each new day...... Cheers from "On Top DownUnder" Crowie

Whose been a busy crow, hoarding all those toys… Great collection, but where’d you put all the dunny paper to make room?

You’ve been a naughty little chappy crowie delving into cotraband… Isn’t Noddy banned now days and punishable by a jail sentence?
Practicing for the inevitable incarceration…

with the wooden shiv?

As an old bloke who grew up with Noddy books to read as an innocent child of the 1960’s; I have no idea of what you’re on about “Ducky”.

On that “cheese knife” in the photo; the gent I gifted the board to, supplied it himself.
