About

Handcrafted Wooden Old Fashioned Toys and Home Decor

Hello and welcome to Aro's Wood Crafts.

I'm Jim Aro; I'm currently retired and live in the beautiful state of Oregon. I have been working with wood all my life, and I love to make old-fashioned toys, keepsake boxes, and other wood items for the home. I have a small shop at home and love to get lost coming up with new ideas. I hope you'll enjoy looking at my creations, and just maybe you'll find one or more that's right for you.


A bit about my process:

~Eco-Friendly Children's Wooden Toys~

I use reclaimed Oregon cedar and oak for most of my projects, and I try my best to run an environmentally friendly shop. For my children's toys, I use the safest non-toxic varnish available on the market, as well as non-toxic glues and paints. I avoid using metal and nails in the assembly of my toys whenever possible, so that they are completely safe for children. Each of my toys are made with old-fashioned appeal, and are built to last. I have a lot of fun making them, and kids just love to play with them. In these days of plastic and electronic toys, wooden toys are a rarity, and some children have never seen anything like them.


~Decoupage plaques~

My decoupage process begins by selecting images--many of which are salvaged from vintage magazines or calendars. These images are then mounted on a wood plaque. Each plaque is hand-cut, shaped, sanded, and painted, and then sealed under several layers of polyurethane.

~Custom knobs and other home decor~

I also enjoy making decorative handpainted wooden knobs with a special painting technique I've developed. They are great for adding to your own furniture, cabinets, or other projects. I can easily create a custom set just for you, if you have a certain color or idea in mind. I also enjoy making wooden letterholders, shelves, and small clocks.
