Just a few fun kids toys for my son and nephew. The hockey man and rubber band shooter come from Bob Gilsdorf’s book of Zany wooden toys. The hockey mans teeth are suspended behind the face and you knock them out with the kleenex bullets from the shooter. The bus and biplane come from where you can get quite a few pretty nice and better yet FREE project plans! Biplane has a walnut fuselage and bubinga lift surfaces with oak dowel stringers. The “engine” I made out of one of the hobby store pickle barrels.

Any toys made for kids, or grown ups are cool. These look Like they’d keep a kid busy for awhile. Very cute toys and well made.

I’m new to the site and just saw this. Very cool. I hope your son and nephew have caught the toy-making bug.
