Lumber/Limber Jacks (tree choppers) are/were somewhat common here, but we still have fun with them.  You could always make a dancing Swagman/Bushranger/Ned Kelly!!!

Thanks perhaps I will, but Kangaroos are somewhat common place here.jive I had thought of a dog but I think a man of some sort first. Will definitely work on a design for a Roo.

Thanks All!

Have explored the sites selling lumberjacks and Ken's idea of making one seem more attractive. The cost of the limberjack is reasonable but shipping to Australia is prohibitive, one company wanted $72.00! The limberjack will have to wait a while as I finish up some other projects.

Many thanks for the responces!

I bought a limberjack from Prairie Wind Toy Co. They're not expensive, the quality is quite good, and they even sell a kit you can build. Their website is prairiewindtoys.com.

I have bought two limberjacks online.  One was from the late Keith Young.  That is obviously not an option anymore.  

The second was a dog limberjack from these folks on Etsy .   It is solidly made.  No concerns about quality at all.   If you just search Etsy you get lots of other possibilities as well.

Thanks Ken, Yes I have seen people selling Limberjacks on the net but one never knows what the quality will be like.

As for making one --- I hoped to have one sooner than that.nod

I don't know about the best place, but you can find limberjacks all over the Internet. The places I would usually suggest are either no longer in business or no longer carry them. Are you sure you don't want to make another one?

Not sure that this is the right section to post this, but non of the other sections seemed any more appropriate.

Some years ago I made a limberjack but a fellow musician fell in love with it and I gave it to her. I planed to make an other but that hasn't happened. Where would be the best place to buy one?
