Always exploring the possibilities with wood. This project was inspired by the thought of making a toy for my kid rather than always looking to purchase something. Pretty simple project really, all it took was a single scrap board of that was roughly 3/4” x 4” x 20” or so. Cut rough shapes out, used a fixed belt sander and dremmel tool to shape each individual part, dowel assembly, and paint. My boy loves it! He especially enjoys swapping the arms for the legs as shown in the photograph, made me laugh pretty good the first time I saw him do that. Wood is so versatile!

-- Peace be with you!

Wonderful. The cool thing is you can fix them. Your son can help with them. Well done.
