For all toy makers out there - free plans for making wooden toys.
These are unique and original designs, not vintage plans.
Designed for beginners with limited tools, using project timber.
If all you have is a jigsaw and an electric drill you can make any of these toys.
For the rocking horses, a router may be useful because it uses template patterns to make duplicate parts, and to "clean up" the jigsaw cuts.
Hope you enjoy making these toys.

Colin used a 3 fluted carbide insert bit for flattening with a router. Where can I find one like that?yesterday
Thank you Glen for your kind comment.
Today i finished sanding all the pieces and put the first layer of coating (Sikkens Cetol HLS plus 077).
It is actually drying till tomorrow for the second layer.

Use your hand drill with a slightly larger bit than the screw. Drill 3-4 holes against each other then tip the drill back & forth to clean up the side of the elongated holes.
YouTube New Yankee Workshop videos & you'll see Norm Abram do this on some of his tables.

My name's Stephan, i live in Belgium.
I discovered the joy of woodworking a few months ago while watching some videos on Youtube.
My very first furniture project is an Adirondack Chair espacially made as a present for my father's 75 birthday (DADDYrondack ).

I still have to sand it a little bit and put a coating (Sikkens Cetol Novatech).
And it will be the time to offer it to my Dad ! I hope he will appreciate.
Thank you again Colin ... Thanks to you and your video seen on Youtube, i did it !
