    Wooden Airplane

    A little 'ditty' at the request of my daughter in law -- a baby shower gift for a co-worker -- momma & daddy to be are flyers and are doing the baby room as an airport (?), so this is in addition to the conventional pampers and one-zee's (whatever they are).

    Taken directly from Issue 127 October 2000 Wood Magazine -- a fun little project..........

    Sorry Forgot the details .. totally made from left over pieces : Body, tail and rudder is maple and walnut, pontoons mahagony, wing cherry (?)
    coated with BLO to enrich the color, several coats of Watco spray poly.

    Nice job Tony! That's a great looking plane. What's the wood? Maple, mahogany, and walnut?

    I love it! What a great little project. I'm sure there will be no diplicates at the shower.

    I made wooden toys for a long time back when I had hair.

    That is one nice piece of work there Tony!
