Router or not?

Postby mjwincott » Wed Apr 11, 2018 9:04 pm

Good eve to all,

I would like to give an edging to my wooden toys like you see on Holztiger toys like seen here:https://www.babipur.co.uk/holztiger-adder.html
I was thinking a bench router would be the best option to do this but i have been told it would not do what i need it to do.

I currently have a belt sander and disc, a bobbin sander and a scrol saw.

The Holztiger animals almost look like a chiseled edge but obviously this would not be the case, I just have no idea on what tool would be able to give edges like this to very small to big wooden animals.

Can anyone help ?

Many thanks,

Martin

Welcome to the forum. I tend to agree that a router won't be able to do a round over on a piece like the snake in your link. Looks to me like it's been done by hand.

Hi Steve, thank you very much for your reply. The company makes hundreds of these snakes and other wooden toys, so they must be using some kind of machine for speed?

Probably made in the Far East by 7 year olds so labour costs would be negligible.
