Use inexpensive wood and paint the farm tools for a different look

 

 

In Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Summer 2012 (Issue 47), Alvin Bulgrien shared patterns for his toy farm implements. The pieces in the magazine were made from hard woods and given a natural finish. 

You can also make the toys from inexpensive pine or poplar and paint them with nontoxic paints. Alvin painted his toys with a John Deere paint scheme.

We've included the pattern for the tractor to get you started. Purchase Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Summer 2012 (Issue 47) to get instructions and patterns for the cultipacker, grain drill, loader, and gas tank.
