I wanted to share these with my friends on the Forum.
I cut these out of 4 pieces of scrap from wood left over from my new work bench.
That is why the are just plywood.

These are so simple and easy to cut.  I think they will be great for kids, because they are stack able.
Cut and finished in 1/2 a day.

These were baked in an oven to get the darker tones of wood.  Plywood is not one of the best woods to use if you are planning to bake or burn the wood, because in this case anyway, it had to much oil or sap in the ply's and burned uneven.

If you disregard that, they are going to be fun for kids to play with, and will look great when made with better quality woods.

Look for the plan set called Scroll Saw Puzzle Pals here on Toymakingplans.com.
Thanks John and Cynthia.

I am impressed with the quality of your photography and the workmanship. What camera and lighting did you use?

Ken - These look really good. I like how the plywood reacted to heat-treating and found it interesting that it also treated the wood throughout it's thickness.
How about telling us which blades/size/number you used to cut the plywood and was there a lot of sanding needed after?

Thank you Osni, John, and Udie for the nice words about the Scroll Saw Puzzle Pals.

John about the camera and lighting.  I took the photos with an old Sony camera we used to use in the Limousine service, because it is the only one I really know anything about.  It is the same camera I took the videos of the craft show with.  As far as lighting, I am not that talented to think about lighting.
The photos were taken on our kitchen counter with just the normal light from the windows.
More important to me than the equipment I have to use is to set up the shot with the light I have.  I also try to take care of what is in the frame.  I look at the frame in the camera to make sure there is nothing distracting there.  Stuff anyone can do.

Udie, I cut this project with a #5  PGT skip reverse tooth blade from Olson.  Mostly because that is the blade I use for most things I am cutting up to 3/4" thick, unless I am cutting puzzles.
This project required very little sanding.  You know I like to use nail files and nail sponge blocks for my hand sanding.  They did the job very nicely.

This was a fun project, and I think the little ones will enjoy it.

Again thank for the kind words my friends.

Thanks for the input on the blades and photos. I really like the way you tell the whole story about the toys in the four photos. This is important to me so I can completely understand what the toy is all about. The premium plywood that you use adds a beautiful detail to the set.
