Woodworker- toy maker----

I will happily share/ help with patterns! I make or modify almost all that I use!

Especially like making rocking horses-- I make at least 4 different sizes, even a "super heavy duty" to support 200+ lbs. (Tester admitted to 330)

-writer- free-lance about vintage real and toy vehicles to national magazines

Grew up on a ND farm. Have done everything from custodial, to trucking, to sales, metal fabrication, plastics manufacturing, retail, and boiler operation, etc. (EVEN STUCK IN A SUIT FOR ALMOST A DECADE!) Have made wooden things for 60+ years

My pictures of some of my items

Here is the link to my Photobucket splash-- A little of everything!

Interests in everything

Comments/questions on anything are appreciated and I will try to answer.

Hi Everyone,

I will happily share ideas and any of my own made up patterns from my website, that you will want. I Always like new ideas and usually manage to make my own patterns up. I can help and scan/email to anyone.

The icon is “Tanader” a relative of the famous one. This is a 6-1/2 foot long toy box.
Please checkout my wbesite at

Any suggestions or questions are very welcome.

I’d be happy to join your buddy list. You sound like me, just an old fart enjoying the sunset of our lives. I will add you to my list which is kinda selective….you are #2. Have a blessed day.
