Project Woodworking: Make Toys
Toy projects made from wood are fun to do as they require some creativity. Once you are done, not only the kids will enjoy playing with them. You too can have fun with your toy creations. Among the more popular wooden toys that you can create are cars, boats, and airplanes.
The first step is to decide on which particular toy to create. You can find a lot of patterns to use online. You can even buy kits from specialty toy shops that have all the materials pre-cut, and all you have to do is to assemble everything. However, some people find it boring as it does not require you to use some creativity.
If you do not want to go the “buy and assemble route,” then create your own pattern from cardboard or paper. Then, trace the pattern on the wood and use a router or jigsaw to cut it out. Assemble your toy using some tack nails and glue.
Project: Bird Feeder or Birdhouse
A lot of adults today have, at one time or another, experienced building birdhouses as kids, however simple they may be. To build a birdhouse, you will need two pieces of wood to use as base. Drill a small hole in each of the corners of the wood where you can insert an eye hook. Do it for both of the base pieces.
