Welcome to Sandy's Wood Shoppe! I've been making wooden children's toys and clocks for about 40 years. I started out in a 3 x 10 foot storage area, and gradually moved into my own shop. Nearly all of the wood I use has either been donated, or is scrap and cut-offs from a variety of sources. It's wood nobody else wanted, so I give it a new purpose and a new home. I love making things for children. They know right away what a toy is for: it's to be played with. And my toys are designed with children in mind. I rarely use nails or screws and normally make joints using glue and dowel pins, and the sharp edges have been sanded or rounded over. Some toys are painted and some are bare wood.
I've moved the location of my shop.
I'm now located in Oak Harbor, Washington, on beautiful Whidbey Island.
My present shop just underwent final inspection by Washington State and Island County - and WE PASSED! Getting things unpacked so I can be back in production, hopefully by June 1, 2017.
If you want to order one of my products, please contact me at:
Thanks for looking, and hopefully we'll have a fully functional shop soon.
