Have 4 grandkids, two girls and two boys. After having 7 daughters it was about time some boys showed up to build for.
Here are a couple of the toys I made for them, The boxes are wooden box drums that actual play different notes. Spend most of my time doing this and turning pens for my friends when I am not working ont he ER’s
Hope you like them

That’s great job with the toungue drums. Do the boys like them?

I’ve been thinking about making some for my nephews. Did you have plans to get the notes right?

Well the Girls like the drum boxes, the two boys just turned two and I made these earlier. You can get the plans from the October 2006 Better Homes and Garden Wood mag. You can really find some good ideas from them on toys every month or two.
Thanks for the comments.

These are wonderful toys. What is not to like about these? You get to spend time in the shop doing some woodworking, the grandkids get some top notch toys and you get to see them enjoy the toys. Sounds like a winning combination to me.

Well done.

I gotta ask, are the SRBs and main fuel tank detachable?

Not on this one but they could be. I made this for my granddaughter that was 3 at the time so did not want anything to come off. . I can get you the plans if you like. It might take some time to find them since I am in the middle of putting down floor and painting. Out of work so while I was looking might as well catch up on the house.
