You are really good at creating these. Clean crisp work.

How long have you been making toys and how many have you made ?

Thanks. I started making toys about five years back. As far as how many , god knows ! I started to make a few to sell then made a few to give to kids at craft fairs , then I belong to a group that makes sure underprivileged kids get toys for Xmas. I plan to have at least three dozen for that . The tractors are new this spring . Started them because my buddy informed me that he liked tractors , So tried them . Now they are a real good seller. Best part of all is I get lots of scraps from construction sites. I use 2x what ever I can scrounge . Next week I will go pick up prob. half pick up load of rafter and floor joyce cut offs . Never waste
a piece of wood ! Good wooding !

We only put clear oils on our toys because of the new requirements.
