Hi Friends
We just sent out 2 new Bi-Planes to a customer in Lemont, PaDSC07009_mini.JPG 
DSC07010_mini.JPG 
DSC07011_mini.JPG  Below shows a baked wood Puzzle Truck.  Made of Redwood, and baked for 1 hour and 40 minutes.  This puzzle truck went to San Diego, CA.

We are hoping the above toys pass the Forum inspection.
I still have to build the above puzzle truck, because it is on our ETSY site and our web site, even though I like the Martin Motors Puzzle Truck better from Toymakingplans.com.  Toymakingplans puzzle truck has more interesting to build.
I would love to hear what you think?
Thanks

Ken,
The planes and the puzzle truck look great! Beautiful finish! I will have to try the baking of wood in the oven, but  first I will have to get pass the wife. That will not be an easy task!
Regards

Both are very nice.  That biplane is easy to custom color based on client's request.

Dolf - I do not have a toaster oven to bake wood outside.  I have baked wheels, dowels, other wood in the house and it gave it a campfire type smell.  Then one day I baked some wood that was from a box store, appeared just like all the other wood I get from them and OMG it ran us out of the house.  The wood had something on it that made our eyes water.   I have not baked any wood since.

Ken - Gotta say they are just fantastic. Your customers will be overwhelmed by your workmanship and finishing. Your photos are perfect. I really like the puzzle truck with the reflection. You can see the middle car in the up right position and in the reflection you can clearly see the profile of the first and last car. Nice presentation. The way you two-toned the wood from the cab, thru the cars and to end of the car carrier is a really nice touch.

Cindy,
   Thanks for the sound advice. I will rather not upset the lady of the house. Now that you mention it, some of the wood that is available locally are treated for termites and wood borer, which could be dangerous.
Thanks and regards

Thanks everyone for the nice comments about the Bi-Planes and the Puzzle Truck.

About baking in the house, Cindy and Dolf are right, best not to do it in the house.
We used my wife's cheap-O toaster oven outside, of course after it got all dusty and wood sap on the tray, I had to buy her a new one.  Small price to pay for the look baking wood can give you.
Sometimes you can find them at swap meets really cheap, but I got Susie's new one at CostoCo for under $35.00.  Peace in the household was well worth it.

Rolly, you are right about how everyone loves these planes.  While building the customers planes above, I built two others just like them.  Last week I sold one blue one at the Dr's office, and a plane wood one at the check out stand at Home Depot.

Thanks Udie for the praise about the photos.  I am not a pro like you are, but am lucky to have a good setting on the dining room table with good natural light behind me.

ed357sw:  so glad you liked the work and welcome.  Am really glad you have been with us and like your comments, thanks.

Again thanks.
