I haven’t posted any projects recently because I’ve been busy working on my first grandchild! And of course, one of his first toys had to come from my workshop. I had favorited Oregon Bob's version quite a while ago and decided to make it for my new grandson. It is made from cherry and maple and it works great (I’ve been fascinated for hours by it’s rolling, clacking noises).

I have a soft spot for these toys. Nice addition of the date, that makes it very special.

I don’t feel sorry for grouches who happen to be around the kid playing with this toy! Nice work!

Nice simple toy good for hours of enjoyment. The first grandchild should enjoy it too. The excuses some of us use to play with toddlers toys. Lets call it development.. LOL HE HE HE HE We could use the development. Thanks for sharing.
