Our wood working club makes and gives away 5000 toys a year to local children’s hospitals and to The Salvation Army. These are some I have been working on this past week. Pine, Cedar & Mahogany

Jim, that is a LOT of toys. It’s always great to see somebody giving back to their community. Thanks for being an inspiration! :)

Dont get me wrong. I only made a few hundred of those 5000. We have a small club (30) but a few of the guys make toys all day every day year round.

I had assumed you don’t make 5000 toys by yourself ;) Kudos to you and the club :)

Really nice Jim. I bet you liked Steve’s post this morning. It’s very generous of you guys to devote your time and materials in that way.

Very nice toys and even better reason to make them.

Keep it up, the woodworking world needs more people like that

These are all nice but what’s even more important is that what you’re making them for is a wonderful cause.
