  • Compound cut toys.

    I have been making compound cut toys lately. I used a reindeer ornament pattern and altered it a bit to beef it up and modified it to make the horse. The Giraffe is just a prototype now.

                Amazing work Jim. Especially when I think of making 125 of them. Thanks for showing.

                    A friend gave me the pattern of the puppy, although what he gave me was a 2-d toy. (flat) I improvised it, and the same with the cat.

                      I plan to make hundreds more. Our club has been donating over 5000 toys per year for many years now but our club has lost two of our toy makers to poor health and one moved away. We now only have two of us making toys.

                        Are you using pine? I've done a few compound pieces just to try the technique, and did use pine because it was quasi soft and easier to learn with on that thickness. What wood works the best for these for durability, given your experience and expertise?

                          Cedar is agreat wood for compound cutting. I also use eastern redwood, poplar and Cherry. I like cedar the best.

                            I first used poplar and it works well but is slow cutting. I have not tried cedar because it is a weak wood. I work with cedar a lot so I just may try that. Thanks for the idea.

                            I have used 2"x 3" pine or spruce, wall studs. I like the distinct grain in the spruce myself.

                              I've watched many of Alex Fox's videos. You did a fine job on this one. I will have to give it a try....

                              Hmm, I read on another message board that the thumb screws are the same size.. and they said they used their screws they had from their old clamp because they had bought some special steel ones with a knurled knob.. so I guess I would assume the screws would work.. then I also read where the only difference...

                              I called suppliers of the Pegas blade holder and none of them could answer if parts were available.I asked mainly for the tip replacement on the thumb screw.

                              I was never a fan of Craftsman power tools. I always though they were for "homeowner duty" and for most normal usage they are great. For heavy duty usage I go with higher end brands. My dad was a big fan. The only Craftsman tools I used heavily and still do are the mechanical ones, wrenches...
