Well I was at an estate auction this past fall and got a good deal on several different types of wood working tools. I got home and was like now what am I going to do with all this stuff? Started searching the internet and found a sight called "toymakingplans" Well as they say the rest is history.

Started making a few of the plans for my grand kids and was an instant success! I have sense bought several plans and have a list to keep me busy for some time!! Here are a few pics of some of my attempts, most are from toymaking plans, IMG_0439.jpg   the bucket truck was derived for some of the plans I saw but made it for my sister in law that works at a local electric company.

I love reading the forum here and look forward to learning more from all of you. IMG_0296.jpg  IMG_0439.jpg

Welcome to the forum! We are thrilled to have you as a new member and really appreciate the great photos of your incredible work. I must say that you have a tremendous amount of energy. That is quite a huge set of toys that you have created.

The bucket truck scene is priceless. What a wonderful heirloom. We look forward to seeing a lot more of your work. Please post more photos whenever you have time. We would enjoy seeing photos of your grandkids playing with the toys along with photos of your work area and how-to's about how you do so many toys so quickly.

great toys. Have now got my Grand kids involved in painting, mind you we may see some psychedelic models.   But hope something rubs off on them and they carry on making. Trying to train them to use the tools, Scroll saw seems to be the best on thin wood.
