I almost sold out of these turkeys, and several people have them in their shopping carts, so it was time to make more. I usually don't make this many in a batch, but the wood I am using to make these usually yields poorly. I expect to have up to 50% of the birds wind up as designer kindling due to defects that I can't detect until the turkey is cut. Much to my surprise, this time, every one of them made it to the final cut.

Handmade wood unfinished layered Thanksgiving turkey cutouts ready for painting sitting on a baking sheet. A 1-inch belt sander is in the background.


Initially, the turkeys were a custom order used for kids to make Thanksgiving decor for their parents. I make the birds from construction grade 1x wood. After I cut them, I sand the parts smoothly and soften all the edges while checking for defects at each step. The turkeys are ready to paint or use as-is for rustic decor.

Made To Order Dragon With a Broken Neck

Dragons

I usually drill all my holes before I cut out the parts, but this time, I had packed the patterns tight, and I decided to cut the dragon pard first and then drill the holes. After all, it is hardwood and much stronger than pine. Not drilling the holes first was a mistake. While drilling the largest hole, the drill bit caught for just a second and broke the dragon's neck. I will not be doing that again. Fortunately, I was making more than one this time and did not need to start over. I lost the time sent making that one body plus the cost of the wood. 

All the parts for one wood dragon. Four legs, two horns, and a pair of wings.

I make these to order in my Toymakers Shop using traditional woodworking tools. The original cutting was made from MDF, as pictured below. MDF works very well for this project. I no longer offer it in MDF due to the weight and lack of storage space for materials. I can make these in many sizes that you may require via custom order.

A handmade Halloween witch and her cat, riding a broom in front of a full moon. An unfinished cutout or silhouette intended for use in creating Halloween decorations, signs, and accents. It is unfinished baltic birch plywood and ready to paint. They are designed primarily as a wall, window, or door hanging decoration.

Usually, I can get them out in a day, but I can't guarantee this will happen.

Other sizes and materials may be available by custom order.

Approximate Size:
Height 6-3/4 inches
Width   9-1/4inches
Thickness 1/2 inch

Other sizes and colors are available via custom orders.

I make items by hand from natural wood and wood products. They can differ from one piece to the next. The one you receive may be slightly different from the item in the listing photos. Wood thickness may vary slightly from the stated size.

Not for children under three years old or kids that are still chewing things. If the toy breaks, small parts may present a choking hazard. Small children should not play with this toy without adult supervision.

Custom orders are always welcome in my shop. Don't hesitate to get in touch with me with your needs.

I use a sanding mop to eliminate the fuzzies that always seem to show up when cutting plywood with a scroll saw. The sanding mop also softens the corners.

Here is a 4-inch tall, three-dimensional, freestanding, unfinished wood turkey for craft projects or decoration. I cut the turkeys by hand from wood using a scroll saw. They are lightly sanded and ready to paint. I made the first of these as a custom order for a preschool.

Approximate Size:
Height: 4-inches
Width: 3-1/2-inches
Thickness: 1-1/2-Inches

Custom sizes and quantities and materials are available via custom order. Pine, Oak, Poplar, Plywood, and MDF are readily available. Other wood types are more costly and require longer processing times.

Thicknesses are available in 1/8-inch, 1/4-inch, 1/2-inch, and 3/4-inch.  Thinner cutouts may only be available made from plywood due to strength considerations.

I can easily make these in any size up to 8-inches wide. Larger sizes are available at additional cost. Larger sizes require hiring a print shop to print the patterns, but I can make them.

If you can draw it, I can cut it.
