Animated Turtle Mechanism Patterns
Learn how the mechanism works, then change the head, tail, and body to the animal of your choice. It's a great set of plans to learn this type of toy and how it works. As you know, animated wooden toys are classic Americana. Update this design and put a smile on some kids' faces.
Like most projects with wheels, you want to buy them, not try and cut them out -- even with a jig this is time consuming and rarely perfect. We have a great source for all kinds of wooden wheels at a low cost. We can help you with that source if you need it.
A list of materials needed are provided, along with the rough cut size for each piece, plus full size patterns, shop notes and exploded construction diagram aid completion.
