Vintage European Wood Toys Patterns Collection #1


Product Description

Based on the tremendous response to our decades old “Novelties” woodworking plans we have gone all out with more novelty plans.  This is the first of two collections of some of the funnest action, balance and ramp toys.  Their inspiration comes from all over the world, but mostly Europe.  Some are over a century old.  Each one is our spin on the original concept.  This is Vintage European Woodworking Plans, Collection #1.  See also Collection #2 on another page.  There are fun devices for the play room, or an executive’s desk.  It’s an excellent way to use shop remnants.  This collection is mostly upright devices.  Nearly all patterns are full size.  Some painting information is included with the patterns.  Also, refer to the images at this site for color ideas.  See these projects in action (YouTube below).  It’s an excellent woodworking value.  For a novice to intermediate woodworker depending on the project selected.  Our 11″ x 17″ plans take little workbench space.  The copyrights allow making a photocopy of the full size patterns.  Trim out the patterns, apply spray adhesive on the backs and place on stock prepared to the thickness noted on the pattern.  You get accurate parts and no tracing.  We mail fast, usually within one business day.
