  • Wooden toy garage

    Not made with the scrollsaw, but wanted to show it anyway. Made for a twin who turned 3 last sunday, requested by their mother. The garage was ordered in clear lacquer, so had to use as little screws and nails as possible because they would keep showing.

          Yes it is, the 2 sides have a vertical slot in them. I glued a strip on the sides of the elevatorcar, so it goes up and down, not from side to side.

          I have not made a pattern, but can give you rough on the key elements if you are interested. Because it was build for twin brothers and the fact that they have an older brother I wanted to create something on every side of the garage to play. That way they don't have to fight over the same space. That's why the elevator, carwash, showroom, gasstation and ramps are positioned on different sides.

          The mother of the twin wanted it in clear lacquer, so it was by customers request. Paint would have been easier because is gives the opportunity to use screws and fill the holes, because the paint will cover it.

            Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

            Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
