Regular guy who likes to make stuff who lives with a very patient wife, three daughters and three cats.

I've always enjoyed making "stuff" but it wasn't until that we had kids that I realized how much fun there was in the making and joy in the giving of wooden toys.

Never had my own shop space but that is changing as a new utility room is being added to our house and I get half of the space to make splinters and sawdust in.

After having "lurked" here for about a year I decided that with my new space coming on line it was time to show some of the stuff I have worked on. This site has given me plenty of inspiration so maybe a couple of my toys will encourage other "lurkers" to stop looking and start making.
