This is a set of toy tools that we (my wife and I) made for our nephew’s birthday. It was so exciting to give this sort of gift. There’s so much of you that goes into these things, and the whole time you are working it gives you a motivation and you just think of the little guy.
I do think it’s funny that you can almost see the progression from start to finish, the more that we did, the more excited and creative we got! We started with the mallet and ended with the saw and screwdrivers. :) We need to replace that hammer someday!

Anyway, it was a really fun project. And only took a weekend and some scraps. I can’t wait to do more things like this.

What a fun project. I am betting he will be quite excited to get these. Really like the drill.

I know he was super excited. He will probably keep these forever and pass them on to his own kids eventually. I know my boys would love’em!

I think this is great! I made a claw hammer once. Yours is no small project. Fun and rewarding. Thanks for sharing.
