One of the members from Belgium posted toy boats recently along with a video.
This morning my wife informed me we needed a toy for a young boy for Christmas, so I gave it a try. My chop saw, drill and sander, clamps, along with 3 different rasps were my tools. Centering the 2 pieces were a bit tricky – would love ideas on how to center something like this … Used wood glue Sanded starting with 100 grit and moved to 600 Finished with mineral oil since a little boy will play with it . Burned a few windows and his name with a wood burning pencil.
A fun project

I really like that. I love vintage type toys and you really hit the mark with this one.

You did a great job on your toy boat. I’m sure that little boy loved that boat. I hope you make many more for lots of children. Thanks for sharing and keep building.
