I WAS A Retired Electrical Contractor, back to work now in this great economy. I build a lot of what I refer to as "Heritage Toys" Some may be referred to as "Big Boys Toys" also. Trucks and tractors all 100% from wood, no kits, and by hand. I don't have any fancy shop and my tractor wheels are from a machine I made just to make them. My granddaughters benefits from the kids toys I love to make them. Small jobs for specialized cabinets and accents round out my "project list" . I have now added carving on my list of accomplishments. Like all endeavors it is a constant learning progress.
