Toy bi- plane

Making wooden toys is one of my favourite things. Here I will show you how to make a bi-plane;
  • Draw out your design as a full sized rod. This enables you to check each component against it, and helps to avoid unpleasant surprises, enabling you to work out all steps of the production.
  • Firstly choose your stock carefully, considering grain direction, colour of materials, etc.
  • Mark out and cut your components as per rod;

  • Start assembling, consider the stages so as not to make things difficult for yourself. Also sand all components before assembly.

  • N.B. Cup of tea...essential!

  • Finish with a coat of oil, after final sanding.
