  1. Matchbox-Hot Wheels Garage-Service Center-Car Park

    Not your basic fine furniture project here but a fun one for the 2 year old grand son's birthday coming soon. He loves playing with the small Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars. The walls are 1/2 inch Baltic Birch. The door frames are Birch strips. The guard-rail around the curved part of the ramp is...
  2. Little cars

    These little guys are made of 1/2 pine and are about 2" long each. You can get 18 of these out of one 4"x18" craft board. They are more of the easter toys, I bet they will be popular!
  3. 1947 Woody

    Made from ipe, oak, and pine. The hood ornament is made from purple heart. Completed 8/2017. I wanted to nickname this project "What now?!" because of the several problems I had during construction.
  4. Little chubby cars

    This was what I did with my weekend :) My wife had this idea for the little neighbor girl's Birthday, where she wanted to get blocks, and have me make small cars to play with them. So these are little (about 2" long by 1" tall) versions of my other cars. I added the houses after ones that I...
  5. Toy John Deere Cars

    This is a late posting of some cars made for my Nephew last Christmas. I have it in my head that he loves these things, and so it is becoming sort of a tradition. He'll be getting these things when HIS kids are the right age to play with them :) I love the idea of a farm play set, so these we...
  6. Experimenting with toy car designs

    Every year we fill shoe boxes for Samaritan's purse for Operation Christmas Child. I have plenty of scarp wood and I was trying my hand at drawing out small cars then cutting them out with the scroll saw. I want to include a wooden toy in the boxes from now on. I've gotten some good ideals...
  7. Finishing Tote?

    I'm not really sure what to call this thing. When it comes to be "finishing" time, I find that the stuff I am looking for is all over the place. When I am done, the stuff is everywhere in different places it doesn't belong. I decided to make a little tote for it. It's made from left over...
  8. Wooden cars and trucks

    As woodworkers, I'm sure that most of us have made, or at least considered making, Christmas gifts for family and friends. I'm no exception. These are some cars and trucks that I made for Christmas (2009) for my kids. I have 7 kids so that is why there are so many. I found a basic style of...
  9. Quick little Fox cars...

    Over the last couple of years I have made probably a dozen of these, normally out of walnut or maple. I recenlty purchased some purple heart and cherry, and made 8 of these little buggers with the scraps I had left over from another project (okay, so I bought a little extra). I got a little...
  10. Toy Cars

    I started off making simple toy cars out of 2×4s based on all of souichiro's cool projects . The 2×4 cars are just plain ole' pine 2×4s finished with a wipe on oil. I gave them to my nephew for Christmas and he loved them- so easy to make and everybody thought they were the cutest thing ever...
  11. Several new gifts

    Here are some more of the Christmas list this year. So many cars, I think I'm in love with these little cars :) The first is another car hauler set that we gave to our Grandparents to keep at the house for the their Great-grandchildren to play with when the visit. They're so supportive of my...

  14. Toy Cars

    Our great granddaughter is fascinated with magnets so I made her a little surprise for tomorrow when we have her.. These are some wooden cars I sketched up on some 1 3/4" stock and cut out.
