A Stearman Biplane that I’ve made numerous times as gifts for both children and adults. This version was made from yellowheart and bloodwood. The pattern is from “The Great Book of Wooden Toys” by Norm Marshall.

Wow, that is incredible. Thank you for posting. I think I am using the same book to make the same project but mine is much less ambitious.

I love the way you cut the wing and the tail from the same laminated piece. It look really cool.

Thanks for sharing!

The Stearman Looks great. I have made a number of toys for the grandsons but they don’t look near as good as what you have done.

I love the contrasting colors in the wood! Excellent job! I might have to add this to the list and tackle this one.

-- I make sawdust. I think thats a fair assessment of my finished products!
