I have friends who’s baby will be turning one this month. I decided to make a little wooden toy boat that had wooden block that could be stacked on the smoke stacks of the boat. I used some walnut from a walnut tree that was harvested by my grandfather about 30 years ago, along with some red oak and poplar dowel that I had sitting around. I finished it with a mineral oil/beeswax mixture so that it would be safe for chewing and whatnot. I hope that this toy will bring joy to their little one, and hopefully he will come to cherish this small piece of art as he grows older.
