I found some scrap pine 2 cm and 3,2 cm thick in the shop. Made some men, printed them out in 50%, 60%, 70%, 80% and 90% of it´s orginal size. I used a bandsaw. Got the template from http://toymakingplans.com/

Neato! Did you design these or get a template from somewhere?

I´m sorry I didn´t design them myself. I got the template from http://www.toymakerpress.com/

I printed them out in 50%, 60%, 70%, 80% and 90% of it´s orginal size

They’re pretty cool, whether you designed them or not. Seems like a fun project. Thanks for the link, looks like they have a lot of great things to make for kids gifts

With a little glue and some identification paint you could have a little boy, little girl, Mom and Dad book end in the making. Cool symmetry in how you knew to change the scale for each of them to essentially make your own design out of another plan.

Great job, gives me excellent ideas.

Maybe it’s mentioned somewhere and I missed it when scanning but did you say how you cut these? Is it all scroll saw?

I used a bandsaw not very easy to make the smallest one´s. I havn´t finished them, going to put some Danish oil on them.

I choose to have them non-gender persons, it´s easier and the kids choose who is who, mom/dad etc.

Proably I have sold these men, don´t know how many of them

I want to design men similar to these men – maybe a little bit bigger than these so I can use the bandsaw instead of the scrollsaw

Yes this is cool – the feet fit in to the neck. I want to make a template to be a little bit bigger – Now I´ll have to sit down and design :-)
