This is a Bi plane i made as a Christmas gift. The two woods are maple and jitoba. The wheels, engine cowling and body were all done on the lathe, the rest was a mixture of band saw and scroll saw. I had a lot of fun with this project.

I love it! I like the little pilot dude! Do you have a plan book of toys like this that you work with? If so I would like to get one and try it!

This biplane is wonderfully done. Good work!

Very nice I like the mix of woods. Is this your own design?

I like that you mixed species to produce the wing decoration.
I know a couple of people that would one of these.
Welcome to LumberJocks! I’ll be curious to see what other projects you will be posting.

I love it! My little boy wants a plane for his room and I want to make him one. Can you tell us the dimensions of this, and did you use plans?Thanks.

Thanks everyone for your comments, as for dimensions I can measure it up when i get a chance but i did not use a plan to build it (I ment to trace the pieces before i glued it up but i got to anxious to see it finished up). weirdly enough i started with the cylinders of the motor first and worked from there to fit and size the rest of the components.
