Hi to you fellow toy makers,

This is my first attempt at toy making , I have spent a lot of time wood turning and decided to take on a new challenge.
I am a retired builder and spend a lot of time in my workshop , with a real passion , for wood.
I look forward to exchanging ideas with others

If you didn’t say that this was your first toy you built, I would’ve bet you have been making wooden toys for years. Great Job and a great passion to have!

Nice toys; welcome to Lumberjocks.

Thank you for the comments and I would be one of the most passionate , when it comes to this hobby . I have been a builder for 50 years , so do have the skills of the trade, which makes this type of work a little easier.

G’Day Bryan,
You aren’t just a toymaker, they’re beaut models indeed and I’m afraid my grandsons would break them.
I have a couple of plans for similar to your craftsmanship but haven’t been game enough or have the patience to start so just make toys for play.
Cheers, crowie
