I made some toy cars from the scraps left over from making the clock. My 2 boys love them. They are about 6”x2×2. I found the plans on the ‘net somewhere. I finished them in opposing colors. The light is just Minwax Natural and the dark is Minwax Cherry.

Simple, yet nice. These are the kind of toys that could put the Chinese out of business, if only there were some Americans willing to produce them and buy them. Great way to make use of your scraps.

Awe man, that’s awesome. I just taught my 5 yr old how to use the scroll saw (with very close supervision), this is a perfect starter project for her :)

I made the same cars a few years ago as Christmas presents. My nephews and godsons loved them.

These are great cars. I found the same plans. I like the use of contrasting wood. I used pine and aromatic cedar for the color.

Have your say...
