I made the trek to my wood supplier that gives us free scrap wood for our Toy Making outreach at the Mason Dixon Woodworkers. These toys are given to underprivledged children at Christmas time. We usually make about 1300 or so toys each year.
This is my catch from the past week. Approx 200 BD ft of Honduras Mahogany. A lot of it is 10/4 square and 30 to 35” long. I can get all of the wood that is less than 36” long. I’m also going through his cuttoff bin and taking all Sapele that is less than 2” wide, no matter what the length. I’m getting some pieces that are 16’ long of course I’m cutting them to fit in my van. We are also making a stake body truck from Sapele this year. It was last made with Cherry 2 years ago.
I plan on making approx. 120 Roaring 20’s Sports Car. The car will be made with Mahogany with the seats, tool boxes, radiator, and storage trunk lid being made with Sapele.
The plans are from Woodworkers Journal July/August 1993.
