I finally finished my second Hummer from Toys and Joys plans, They is made from Pine, Maple, Oak, Purple Heart, Ebony, Walnut. This is a challenging project. I used every machine I own to create these toys. I don’t think toy is the right word, they are actually quite delicate.

Wow, those are quite intricate. Very nice, Raymond.

So, are you going to give them to children to play with? :)

Fantastic workmanship. Yes they do need to be put somewhere that they can be admired and not played with.

Those are fine looking miniatures.

G’Day Ray,
They sure look good and one can see all the time, effort & patience that went into making a great toy model.
Love the mix of timbers & the colouring in it.
More photos next time please, so we can see the detail closeup from every angle, thank you.
Cheers from On Top DownUnder, crowie

I agree that they are not really toys. I would call them wooden scale models—and really nifty ones, too. I can’t believe you even made opening doors for them. There’s a lot of fine craftsmanship in those Hums.

Have your say...
