I have been reading this blog for quite a while and have finally signed up. I will have some pics to post to night of my shop remodel and newly built router table. My focus is on building models with my girls. They like going to our local Lowes and Home Depots for the kid crafts in particular the vehicles they do. I want to get hold of some plans so we can build some more detailed/complicated models at home. Does anyone have suggestions on where to get plans. Downloadable would be preferred but not required.

Thanks, Pete

Wood Magazine has several issues that have plans to build vehicle models. Here's a link to a related website that has plans available. And a link to back issues from the Wood Magazine website.

I have built and modified Toys& Joys plans many times. They are well written for the novice builder. You do have to have some “experience” to make the most of them. Best part is they are full sized plans. Order several at one time because shipping is $10 for 1 or 20 sets.

The best way to locate wooden toy plans is do an Internet search. I have found some absolutely novel and fantastic toy plans this way. It does take some searching and time though.
