Child Shape Toy

The idea for thos toy literally came to me in a dream. It is co n structed of maple, cherry, and walnut. Each side is a square 1/2 × 6 x6 with a 4 inch round insert of a srcond wood and the shape fitting into it from the third wood species. Five of the round inserts are glued into place wh o le the sixth is constructed using dowels to create a quarter turn release for removal. Each shape was sized to prevent it from fitting into another shape cavity. The toy was final sanded using 320 grit and hand finished usein my receipt of organic beeswax and food grade cooking oil.
