These aren't your average store-bought toys - each is carefully crafted by hand using a scroll saw and finished with amber shellac.

The toy monster trucks in this collection are based on the pickup truck from the play pal collection and are cut from 2x4 pine. The cars are from the Hot Rod Freaky Ford Collection, featuring four 1932 Ford sedans, one 1932 Deuce Coupe, and four hot rods based on the 1927 Ford T-Coupe. I carefully cut the bodies for these cars from 2x4 stock using a scroll saw.

Why did I choose to use a scroll saw instead of a bandsaw for this project? While a bandsaw can undoubtedly get the job done, a scrollsaw cuts slower but produces a much better cut that requires much less sanding. As a woodworker, I would much rather spend my time cutting than sanding, and the scroll saw allows me to do just that. Plus, a scroll saw can make inside cuts like the windows in this car collection and make much tighter turns.

Overall, this batch of handmade wood toy cars and trucks was a labor of love, and the results are genuinely one-of-a-kind. The final touches of black, metallic purple, metallic emerald green, hot pink, and metallic sapphire blue acrylic paint make these toys stand out.
