I am new to this forum, and also fairly new to making wooden toys.
I mostly make little cars and tractors for underpriviledged children, but would also like to expand into making more toys.
Any one out there with plans or ideas.
Would like to hear from you

I make toys as time permits for my grandsons, 15 months and 3 years. Most of the toys have been from plans through ScrollSaw Woodworking and Crafts magazine, as well as others and from plan purchased form catalogs. Currently working on a train set of 7 cars,each will have a seperate main color. I use Primarily the scroll saw, but use the drill press, osilating belt/drum sander, and now have started using a table saw.
Much of my work is produced for the Shetland Sheepdog club We belong to. I donate to the club to use, or other items to sell at the show raffles to raise money to ru nthe club and provide educational program. I have also made 3 and 4 piece puzzles for developmentally challenged kids at a local hospital.
