For sure, you can use your woodworking abilities in creating wonderful toys that can be sold over at eBay. This would only mean that woodworking can also be a lucrative business for you. However, if you are just a beginner in this kind of job, it is best for you to know the details on how to create a toy using wood.

Take into account that they type of wood you should use must be appropriate in making the toy. This is to make the toy durable and feasible to sell over at eBay. Well, you don't want to sell a wooden toy that is quite flimsy since you already know that kids are playful and can even throw the toy. Moreover, the type of toy you want to make should meet the standards of a wooden toy (the toy should be free from small parts especially if the toy is quite small).

Besides this, you should also consider the type of wood that you would want to use in making a toy for eBay. Now, here are some of the types of wood that you can use (hardwood or softwood).

Softwood:

  • Pine
  • Fir
  • Cedar
  • Redwood
  • Hardwood:

  • Birch
  • Cherry
  • Mahogany
  • Ash
  • Oak
  • Maple
  • Walnut
  • Teak
  • Now, one of the best wooden toys you can surely make (and the easiest) is wooden puzzles. These wooden puzzles are not a choking hazard for children since you can make bigger sizes with it. Moreover, this kind of toy can be a hit for moms who want to provide toys for their children.

    To start in making your wooden puzzles, you have to get a flat type of wood. Make sure that the wooden material you get is sturdy enough. Remember that the lumber should be 1 - 2 inches thick so that it can stand up as the kid finishes the puzzle. The next part is to get the other materials you need.

    • Saw (scroll saw or band saw)
    • Sand paper
    • Puzzle shape patterns
    • Patterns - animal, plants, cars and etc.
    • Paint (non-toxic)

    After having all the materials needed, you can now lay the wood on your work table and place the pattern on it. Just make sure that pattern is exact. After drawing the shape, you can now draw the puzzles onto the main shape of the toy.

    Cut the wooden pattern (e.g. Dinosaur or a bird) using a band saw or a scroll saw. The next part is to use the sand paper and smooth out the rough surface of the raw material. Make sure that there sides of the product are also smooth so that there will be no wood splints.

    The next step is to apply some paint (non-toxic). Well, you can also make the wooden toy without painting it. Just use varnish for a wooden finish. Take into account that after you have finished the toy, you can make another toy using different shapes and sizes. With this sample wooden toy, you can make more and sell woodworking toys at eBay.
