Thank you to all my customers who have sent photos of the toys that they have made and comments on the plans & patterns.

The Bi-Plane Rocker is my best seller so it makes sense that most of the photos, received so far are of it, I love the variety of colours, and seeing the different timbers that are used by people around the world.

If you have sent an E-Mail with photos and one is not below please E-Mail me again, (I am getting better, but I still don't trust myself completely with all this technology and may have deleted your e-mail or filed it in the wrong place).

With many thanks,

Phillip

 
  Hi Phillip
 
Not sure if you got the photos of the wheelbarrow we made out of spotted gum, so I'm sending them again.
 
Our grandson loves the 'barrow', and it gets used a lot in the backyard. A very practical toy for a toddler. Thanks for the great plans and we're looking forward to building the dumptruck and front loader next.
 
Hoping to see the 'barrow' displayed in your gallery.

  Dear Phillip,

please find attached some photos ( of the plane ) for possible inclusion in your gallery. I enjoyed making the plane and found your plans and instructions very accurate / helpful. As I have only limited tools ( no lathe or router ) I decided to make the plane out of 19mm ply. It's not the easiest to work with but with a bit of patience and a lot of sandpaper a reasonable result can be achieved, you be the judge of it.

First of all thank you for the wonderful plans. Really enjoyed making it. I have attached a couple of pictures of my version. It is USAAC version in honour of my new grandson who was born in the United States.

Attached is a picture of the completed bi-plane I made with your plans for my grandson. I used oak for the undercarriage and seat as the pine I had seemed too soft.

Everything worked out well and I had fun doing it. I found a neat site for the custom decals, lettering and ensignia. www.bandegraphix.com.

Okay. Unlike some others in this thread I won't be shy about posting some photos.
I bought the Model T Ford plan set from Phil at the Maleny Wood Show and had to admit to him that I had still not made those I'd bought the plans for at the Hands On Expo.
So here you are Phil. I've partly met your challenge. The Dump Truck is complete and as you can see at least one person is happy with the result.

I'm chuffed, as I'm not really experienced, but I am sure the 4 year old grandson will love it.

Thank you for the prompt service of my recent purchase of the bi-plane plans. The plans exceeded my expectations. The markings and outlines were nothing short of perfect. I have included pictures. I enjoyed it so much I built 2.

Thanks again and I will order more plans down the road.

  Here is a picture of my son at his first birthday. His grandfather made him this plane from your plans. He loves it and so do we!

Hi, Phillip,

Photo of the completed bi-plane. I made it out of different woods, iroko, oak and pine. The body is stained pine. I didn't make the rocker base, as I recently made a small rocking horse. Bi-plane came out well, mainly due to your plans.

HELLO,
My son asked me in September if I would build a doll house from your plans.
Of course, I said "Yes" and I actually wound up building two ( one for each of my oldest granddaughters). I'll build one for my youngest granddaughter when she's older.
The girls got their houses for Christmas and they've been quite a "hit" with them!!
I thought I'd send a few pictures and let you use them as you see fit.
Your plans are easy to follow and they produce beautiful toys.
My wife helped paint and decorate the interiors .

Phillip,

I really liked your bi-plane plans and templates. There was not one miss-cut piece of wood and the project came out just like the picture. I attached the end result. I hope it lives up to your expectations!

I will become a regular as long as the grandchildren are small. Then I will have to wait for great grandchildren!

Thanks,

B.A. USA

 

Hi Phillip

Here's my version of the bi-plane rocker for your gallery. It's painted blue/white as our grandson Harry's father is an Everton football club supporter!

Brilliant fun making it. The plans were easy to follow thanks. I made up tracing paper templates.
I couldn't get 12 inch pine here in Guernsey, so had to use American oak for the body. Makes it somewhat heavier but more solid. In case you're interested the body has 3 coats of Danish oil and the pine 3 coats of Antique Pine satin varnish.
I did find the seat a little small ,so expanded it and adjusted the tailplane height. I had trouble bevelling the prop, so simply routered it.

Roll on the next project! Not sure yet but thinking of a motorcycle rocker. Any plans for that? (I'll check your website).

Best regards

Received plans, thank you, your plans are excellent because I have been buying plans from all over Australia for 20 years and none of them display the patterns like yours, thanks I will send a photo when finished. I will have a look at all your other plans and might order some more.

Hello from Whitianga N.Z.,
We have received great admiration of the rocking bi-plane that we decided to
build a second one which we have donated to our local cancer support group for them to raffle as part
of their fundraising.

I will forward a CD in the next few days with several photos that can be used for your gallery if you wish.

The dump truck and loader look good, in particular the loader. Might have be a new year project.

Keep up the good work. J.T. NZ

 

Thought I would attach a couple of pics of the Rocker - Plane. I'm sure my grandson will enjoy it this Christmas. - Great pattern!

Thank you for the plans that I purchased in late July. I enjoyed making the project.

Anyone that has seen it has been full of praise, not only for my attempt but for the design at large.

The timber I used is Macrocarpa.

If you are still proposing to put together a photo gallery of

completed projects I would be happy to provide a selection of photos of various angles of the bi-plane.

I have been making toys for 45 plus years and have to say this is the best design I have seen in a long time.

Thanks again,

J.T. NZ
THANK YOU FOR THE PLANS THE BI PLANE IS A WOW, ALL READY ON FOURTH ONE AND
MORE TO DO. DO YOU HAVE ANY PLANS FOR ROCKING HORSE OR SO FOR LITTLE GIRL.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AS I LOOK ON YOUR SITE EACH WEEK TO SEE IF ANYTHING
NEW, THANK YOU AGAIN.

Thank you so very much for the patterns.

They arrived today.

I was truly astounded at the quality and presentation of the patterns. You could not not have done a better job, the continuity and presentation of each pattern was a superb testament to your ability as a planner and wood worker.

I am glad I ordered my plans from you, as I have a clear and concise pattern to follow easily thanks to your careful attention to detail in every aspect of the project.

I congratulate you on a job very well done.

However, after saying all of that and sincerely meaning every word, I wonder if I could request a little bit extra from you, in the form of a big tuff bull bar for the fronts of the trucks to protect the magnificent grills of these trucks.

I have made a few prototypes myself, but I am just a self taught learner in this toy truck making venture and would rather see how a professional does it.

Thanks again for the great patterns, I will be cutting the paper plans out tonight and then start building the trucks tomorrow.

Great work, and once again thank you for a quality product beautifully laid out and very professional. Well done ....just a rough tuff rugged bull bar please.

Cheers

M.B. AUS
 

(We now supply a bull bar plan with each Prime Mover - Phillip)
