Wooden toys have a sort of vintage nostalgia to them, but Thibaut Malet‘s Art Toy Project takes that nostalgia to new levels by creating precise wooden replicas of the popular Lego mini figurines. How cool is that? The project, like a lot of Malet’s projects demonstrate a beautiful usage and workmanship of wood to create one of a kind or limited edition objects that elevate mass-produced items into works of art. You can check out more of his art on his website. Inspiring any would-be toymakers out there?
Thanks to Handmade Charlotte for the tip.
