Greatly reducing the size of toys can produce really neat ornaments. It's a great way to use up those bits and pieces of scrap wood leftover from toy projects. toyornaments.jpg

These are wonderful. Please post more phtos and tell us more about the toys. We would also like to read about you and your workshop. The forum has unlimited storage so post as much as you want. Also, your work qualifies for being posted in the toymakingplans projects section of the forum.

Well John, there's not much to say about my shop, better known in my family as the sawdust factory. It's pretty much the size of a postage stamp, requiring rolling saws, router table and other large equipment out on the driveway. I'm just a 70 year old grand dad that's had a passion for hobby woodworking since age 10.

I'd like to take a moment to say thanks and compliment this very fine forum. It's rare to find a place where a persons just beginning a first project can get so much good quality information from so many.  Although it's been a very long time since my first project, I can still remember having so many basic questions and having so few answers available.

I've been thinking of making toys into ornaments. It started when I was building the Toddlers Rocking pony and I realized that to make minature version all I had to do was use the parts index page for a pattern. In this case it would give me about 4 inch long rocking horse.

Nicely done, there are some attractive ornaments offered on this site and I'm sure they would test my patience to make.
