Child Safe Timber Teething Ring question, assistance please!!

The internet suggested “Hard Maple” but I believe that’s a USA timber;

BUT what can I use in Australian Timbers please, thank you.

Cheers, crowie

WOW Thank you Rob, I only need a piece 160mm x 90mm x 10mm thick to make a small elephant shape with my eldest daughter as a gift for our youngest daughter who’s just had our fourth grandson a week ago…

He’s still in Children’s Hospital “High Dependence Ward” after a heart issue was detected at 20weeks pregnancy mark tests.

I’ll need to pay at least the postage please sir, Cheers, Peter

OK Peter

These are the details

The timber I have is floor boards or lining boards it has locking tabs on each edge and stress milling grooves on the B side see attached pictures.

Once you milled the edges off the overall size I would expect it to be about 130mm x 19 mm.

Once you milled the B side flat I would expect a piece to be about 130mm x 16mm

Do you have a thicknesser?

For your consideration..

-- Regards Robert

Don’t see your issue crowie... Just say ”hard Maple” with an Aussie accent and you should pass the muster.

Seeing as how rc has helped you out… I will put away my chemistry set and stop trying to breed a new Aussie species. Would have taken a few days to grow the tree anyway… By that time the kid would need a pooping ring.

G’day Crowie, looks like Rob has the wood you require so I won’t confuse the issue with suggestions. Have a good New Year.

Tony, The commercial one’s in the USA are made from Hard Maple aka Rock Maple and it is also referred to in the how to make your own so that’s why I asked about the specific timber. I’m really appreciative/thankful for Rob’s offer to help me with the exact timber here. Cheers.

Hey rc, you are 99% there…. Many toymakers use Rock Maple… (I do exclusively… with a dash of Walnut and cheap red).

Now I’m not sure if that’s a “Queenslander” CARE PACKAGE for a bloke who met a top lady whilst in the Navy, then married her 38yrs ago today
OR just a good mate having fun while being very generous…..THANK YOU Rob!!
