Just a little something to let you all know I am healing up .Hand is doing good , cast comes off on the 9th. then we will know how soon I can get back into the shops. I am going nuts not being able to work. mI made these for the grandkids so they will have something to do while I fish this summer. Scraps from cleaning the shop, nothing special.

Great to hear you’re on the mend Bud.
The toy timber ships look good; many hours of fun, play and imagination in them.
One thing sir; there is no such thing as scrap timber; only offcuts that are awaiting a use!!

Nice fleet “Admiral”.

Making a navy . Is something to do.

I do realize the “can do nothing” will drive anyone over the edge! I can barely tolerate decent TV; let alone the GARBAGE my wife likes.

I hope that you will recover very well and get back to the shop as fast as possible. That’s a nice toy boat.

You say nothing special, your to humble. That’s a great looking toy. Very creative in your design and that makes for a super toy. Thanks for inspiring

It’s good to see that the fleet is sailing off- so I bet new ships are coming.
