So.. Most are made from…See More

Please tell us about yourself.
Kids are almost out of the house & I'm looking forward to spending more time on the shop. Most of my machines have been passed on to me from my Dad and Uncles. They got them from their Dad's so a lot of the stuff dates t the 1930's
Please describe your main woodworking interests.
Making wood toys seems to keep me occupied. Toys are great. no matter how bad a job I do on them, they are always well received...
