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.
Look for me at the Coupeville Art and Craft Festival August 10th and 11th, 2019. I don't know yet where my booth will be, but I will be there for the second year in a row!
Please see the photo below for a large pickup truck. It is about 16" long, and about 5" wide. As with nearly everything I make, there are no screws or nails used in the vehicle, and made out of a variety wood - most notably vertical grain fir! Sells for $45.00 (shipping is extra).
