Toft Workshop - Steam Locomotive - Handmade Wooden Gift

This iconic 19th Century American Steam Locomotive is made using re-cycled parquet flooring by TOFT GIFTS in Cambridgeshire. TOFT GIFTS work with a local floor sanding company & recycle old flooring to make these gorgeous replica iconic wooden gifts

  • Made from ethically sourced wooden flooring
  • Every component of the vehicle is made from recycled wood
  • The basic shape of the vehicles is cut with a band saw and then the initial shaping is started with a table router.  After these machines have given a rough outline, elbow grease takes over and the detailed sanding begins.
  • The assembly process requires only glue.  A PVA glue is used to bond the components (so super strong) it holds the wheels incredibly securely.
  • After the sanding and construction the timber is sealed using NATURAL BEES WAX which has been approved for use on children’s toys.
  • Every single vehicle is finished in this way and no two are exactly the same.  Every one has a unique number stamped on the underside & a record of every vehicle produced is kept - so your gift is unique
  • The current timber stock will last some time but will eventually run out & then more flooring will be found & recycled, possibly maple, possibly not – its all part of the individuality of the items produced.  
  • Measures 20cm x 10cm
  • Each vehicle comes in its own cotton bag
  • Ethically sourced, Hand Made, Completely Unique and Beautiful to look at.

The farming of Organic Cotton does not use chemicals or pesticides & therefore results in a much cleaner process which is clearly benficial to the environment & to the health of your family. Switching to Organic Cotton Farming results in less soil erosion, less damage to the environment, the reduction of green house gases & less energy used overall. Clearly it makes sense to go organic.
