Hi dear, I hope that you can always smile even when you are working! So I design this wooden frog for you. And happy holiday! The wooden frog toy is mainly made of walnut wood. It consists of 3 parts, legs, body and mouth. Because the toy is designed for children, I decide to make the frog toy in a small size. The thickness of the whole frog is 2.125” and the overall length is 6.5”. The body is composed of three pieces of wood and each piece is about 0.7” in width. Those pieces of wooden frog toy are made in a series processes. The following drawing is the wooden frog toy I designed and it shows all the parts I need for the wooden frog toy.

Step 1: Do drawings

In the process of making the wood toy, many types of machine are used for making the toy. The illustrator shows mechanical structures of mouth and legs. First, according to the printed illustrator drawings, the pattern of each piece is drawn on the wood for cutting. Then the band saw machine is used for cutting the piece of each part of the frog. The pieces can be made larger than the actual size because they have to be sanded later. The diagram shows the overview of doing wooden frog.

I like it, will have to make one for my wife, who is a lover of frogs! Do you have any drawings you would be willing to share, specifically the AI file mentioned for the CNC machine?

Also, in that picture, several of the steps listed seem to be for an assembly line style work... why is that? Just curious, seems a bit... off, lol.

Hi, actually I tried to cut wood by CNC machine, but I did not find one. So I cut body parts with band saw and sanded it, so I did not use drawings for CNC machine. I just printed drawings and glued separate parts on wood. I then cut with band saw. With band saw, the small parts are really hard to be done by hand, so I just bought small parts existing like wheels and sticks in the Hobby Lobby. Sorry for making you confused! I made it for my boyfriend and he likes it! I hope you can make it for your wife!

I am not sure that I still have those drawings, but I will try to find them and make the process more clearly.
Thanks! I would appreciate it; I can probably come up with my own variant given time... but if the drawings exist... it would be a great time saver!

Hi, I tried to find drawings on that computer, but I did not find it. My friend deleted it I think. I'm sorry about that. Maybe you have to draw it by yourself. I only drew the shape of body and legs. I hope that I can help you more. Sorry and Good luck!!!!
