About

I have always been deeply appreciative of woodworking. My grandfather had a workshop in the back of his garage with a potbellied wood stove, antique power tools, and drawers and drawers of screws, nails, hinges, hooks, tacks, wingnuts, and basically any type of fastener or fixture that you might need, want, or loathe to throw out. I guess it stuck with me.

In 2007 my wife and I bought our first home. Built in the late 1800's, it has a lot of character, including a low-ceilinged basement built into the rubble foundation. It wasn't much but I told myself I would turn it into my first workshop - even if the door to the basement was too narrow and awkward to allow a potbellied wood stove to pass through.

In 2007 my wife and I bought our first home. Built in the late 1800's, it has a lot of character, including a low-ceilinged basement built into the rubble foundation. It wasn't much but I told myself I would turn it into my first workshop - even if the door to the basement was too narrow and awkward to allow a potbellied wood stove to pass through.

My first project was a set of three jigsaw puzzles that I made for my nephew. They were painstakingly cut with a coping saw and I sanded them until my hands were numb using 150-grit sandpaper. They were very well received and I decided I wanted to take my work to the next level. Over the course of two years I bought myself the biggest table saw that could fit through the door and a band saw. I received a drill press, belt sander, and router table. I started building furniture and cabinets, built-in closets in our new home...and then my wife and I had our son, Finn.

Now, while I'm not trying to miss the next amazing thing he learns how to do, I'm frantically trying to build all of the toys he might ever want, and looking forward to watching him laugh and play with them. The toys I sell here are duplicates of what I have made for him. I'm hoping your little one loves them as much as he does.
