Creating "Toys From Times Past" from wood is my joy and my living.  In designing and making each toy, trick, and "executive" puzzle, attention to detail is important.  Beginning with rough boards of cherry, walnut, maple, and mahogany, I plane, size cut, and sand the wood until it is ready to be used.  I then make the many different parts involved in the various toys.  I also use the lathe to turn several of the toys. Many of the puzzles have secret, internal locks and I especially enjoy this challenge.  Danish oil is used to finish the over sixty items I currently create.  Upon completion, the toys display the beauty of the hardwoods and create opportunities for fun and challenge for all ages.  My wife, Dawn, has been my helper in the business, assembling toys, doing historical research, and demonstrating at shows with me.
