Routering out a letter in the base of a MDH TOYS wood name puzzle for toddlers, handmade wooden toys made in Canada
Here at M.D. Handfield Designs Inc, we still do woodworking using traditional methods. Solid wood letters are cut by scroll saw and sanded smooth by hand. The solid wood puzzle bases are also done in the traditional way, without the use of computerized machines. This post highlights a video of Shane routering out one of the letter holes in a puzzle base last night.

Painting the letters onto solid wood blocks for MDH Toys Montessori Style Reading Spinners by M.D. Handfield Designs. Handmade wooden educational toys made in Canada
Each set still takes a couple of hours to make, but it is nowhere near how long it took me to design each individual spinner to make sure all words are real words. About 20-30 hours of design development went into each Montessori style reading spinner, approx 100 hours in total for each set.
