For those of you that build layered toys like the "Small World Tow Truck", how do you cut and glue these without spending a huge amount of time sanding?

I laminated the wood first where possible.

another way is to stack cut parts where you can as well, so I would cut the middle piece out and stack cut the outside pieces, then glue it all up.
I'm not smart enuff to figure out that I could just go ahead and glue the parts together like Tony LOL

Tony you got a fine set of toy's there. I like the wood selection.

Tony,
 Are the VW's the original plan size or did you enlarge them? I couldn't tell from the photos. Either way, they look great. Love the hardwood!

Great job on the VW's.
Racing strip on the VW with the roof really makes the final product pop.
Excellent idea on laminating the pieces together and then cutting.

Thanks for the comments, Brian they are the original size. I actually made a whole fleet and all have found homes.

Tony - the fleet looks fantastic.
Outstanding finish but ... how did you do it and what did you use.
Did you rub something on, is it Cynthia's Bee's wax?
Need to know buddy.

Congratulations on a beautiful set of classics! I have never seen a better rendition of these designs. The photos are each a great layout and capture the fun dynamics of the Small World toys.

Tony - love the fleet and the finish is great.  the natural wood with the satin beeswax is perfect.  the VW fleet and gas station has been consistently one of my best sellers. 

Ian - the short body tow trucks are very cute.
