        Our club was on Chicago TV a few years ago, when we made over 1500 toys. It was our Toys for Kids program that caused me to stop fishing and make more toys. This year we made over 600 toys.

        There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

          That is a great video. I am getting in the same spirit. I am going to make some wood toys through out the year to donate for next Christmas. My wife and I buy toys and other items through out the year to donate to under privileged kids. It is amazing the good buys you can get if you have the time to shop.

            For three years I cut out 2X4 cars and trucks for the Marine reserve. They sanded and painted and added the wheels someone else made. Averaged about 2000 bodies a years until I wore out the scrollsaw. Good feeling.

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

                For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.
                The laser doesn't care about grain....

                A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
