The Toy Soldier's Wife
By Dennis Daudelin

For: Intermediate Turners


I recently turned a toy soldier. It was my entry into my local woodworking club’s annual 2x4x8 contest. Based on the rules, I was only allowed to use a single 2x4x8 for the piece. It took me a while and several layouts to create my design. I had to make several glue-ups and then I turned, sanded, and painted the soldier. He is one foot tall.
