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.

I recently came across 2 WOODSMITH binders of WOODSMITH magazines starting with issue #1 through 48. They are in very good condition. I read through them and decided to pass them on to another wood worker as I don’t do much of this type wood...
I have had this on my mind for a LONG time. My wife and I both have solid Oak “school” desks in our office I rebuilt them many years ago. She is always fussing that mine needs cleaning up. Then she does it, moves everything around and ...
