I am really a novice to woodworking, although I have been at it all my life. I got started, like a lot of you as a child. I followed my Dad around his shop and was aloud to make toothpicks out of some of his stock.

Later in life, I got very involved with model airplanes. I have always had a love for aviation. I was a private pilot before marriage and kids took the flying funding away. Building giant scale radio control airplanes was a great and rewarding hobby. It also taught me a lot about joining wood.

Now I am retired. My dad passed from this world a few years ago and I inherited his power tools. With a new wealth of machines to try out, I found myself building toys. I just love my new found hobby. Although I will build many other projects (my wife has a long list)... It's the toys that I love the most.

I am the ToyGuy, if anyone might be interested in this aspect of woodworking, just drop me a line. I love to talk toys.

Getting your feet wet? Take it from an old timer like me…It takes some getting use to. I will say this, the web master for this site has got their s_ together. This is a fun place.

Hi Brian, You have a lot of cool toys and more. I never had the patience for the small toys. This is a great site. I will be looking for more of your work.

Thanks for your comments on my cherry bedroom unit much appreciated. The people I made it for have been friends for a long time, but believe me it wasn’t a gift they pay for it. Again thanks for your comments hope to talk to you again.
