Location: Edmonton,AB Canada

Iam retired & divide my time between woodworking in the fall & winter/ gardening during spring,summer & fall. During my working life, I did a lot of carpentry around the home from building garages to finishing basements which also included wiring & plumbing. Retirement allowed me to move on to fun projects instead of those of necessity.
I no longer work at large projects ( there is only so much room in the house). I belong to a woodworkers guild that sponsors toys for children of needy families in Dec of each year. I discovered that I like making toys & they are small & donated & don't clutter up the home.

Welcome to LumberJocks. Glad to have you aboard.

Glad that you make toys for children.

I’m a member of the Mason-Dixon Woodworkers Club, We make toys for children about 50 weeks of the year. We meet on Wed of each week. We usually make about 1200 toys. We distribute them to other charities who then give them to the children. I’ve posted some blogs about our toy giveaway on the first Sat of each December. We have anywhere from 5 to 15 people that show up on toy workshop day.
