A local lumber place around here (Windsor Plywood) sells a variety of hobby
wooden parts, like wheels, little hearts, letters, and (the point to this
reply) little wooden people like you describe. Unless you live in Western
Canada, however, the name of the store won't help you. But the type of
I think I'm wrong on all counts. Turns out they have two stores in Seattle,
and one in Ontario (Canada). Ah, well, I tried... :) Of course, if that's
the only thing I get wrong this week, I'll be happy!
They are called "people" strangely enough. Playskool uses them in a lot of
their toys. The best ones are turned on the lathe. Most craft stores carry
one or two of the eight different types that are available. I sell scale
wood to schools for bridge, tower, and home construction learning and will
be bringing on board all eight different types (people) by the pound for
woodworkers and crafters. If you need just a few . . . go to Michaels. If
you want twenty to 100 . . . www.woodbythebundle.com .
I do not have anything listed yet ( turned wood ) as I am still gearing up
for the 100 plus different types to be offered by the pound, you can email
me of your needs and I will see what I can do to get you some ahead of time.
Wheels, balls, knobs, finials, plugs, cubes, spindles ,glue pins, etc. if it
is wood . . . I will have it soon.
