  1. Toy Helicopter

    A simple toy Helicopter made from Poplar :)
  2. Apache Helicopter

    The March 2019 issue of Wood magazine has a neat pattern and parts kit to build a wooden Apache helicopter. I think my grandson would like this one, so I decided to build one. All of the parts are either hard maple or cherry. The fuselage is 16.5 inches long. This project could be a...
  3. Helicopter model

    Just a fun little project to make a helicopter model for my 8 year old son. The original file was purchased from WoodMarvels.com and then modified a bit in Aspire. The parts were cut out using my CNC and then finished with a flush trim bit and some sanding. A bit of tweaking and it went together...
  4. Toys for my baby boy

    Hello Lumber Jocks! This is my first post here, thanks for looking and any comments in advance. I had a baby boy, who is 9mos now, and it gave me the perfect opportunity to go out in the garage and do some small projects that could be completed in one night. Most of these toys are made from a...

  6. Mini Helicopters

  7. 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...
  8. Marine Helicopter CH-53 (with a little imagination)

    My talent does not match my imagination. My oldest son is a pilot in the Marine Corps. When he was deployed to Afghanistan I started thinking about carving or making a model of his aircraft, the CH-53. It is a HUGE helicopter. 99 feet long, and capable of lifting a tank, an F-18, or taking...
  9. Army vehicles

    A few army vehicles for our boys. They can sit for hours and play with their little men, fighting some of the most heroic battles ever witnessed. So I wanted to give them some battle ready 2×4 cars to play with. I thought that the chinook would be the most popular, but the tank is by far the...
  10. Helicopter

    Another grandson project taken this time from a book of working wooden toy plans. The main blade rotates on the simple cog mechanism seen in the 3rd picture. The tail rotor spins free. The handle looks a bit ungainly but seems to work fine both for running along the floor or "flying". The wheels...

  14. RC Radio/Transmitter Tray for Flying Enthusiasts

    This is a tray for holding and RC radio for those who are flying enthusiasts with airplanes and helicopters. This works best for those who use the 'pinch' method of holding the control sticks. I got this idea from another on YouTube and modified it to fit my radio. Made of a scrap piece of...
  15. 1/8 Scale Bell 429 Helicopter

    After almost 10 months and 500 hours of work, this 1/8 scale Bell 429 model is finally complete! Last May I began drafting the plans for this model using both measurements from the real helicopter and many pictures from the internet. At first I designed it to be to scale with my previous...

  19. Hand Tools
    Hi folks, Long-time reader, first-time poster. :) I've bought a few old hand planes at flea markets and swap meets recently because a) it's fun to restore them, b) my dad does the same thing and we're both kind of competitive, and c) they're just gorgeous and I love to look at them. Oh, and...
