Announcement   Happy Bungalow is the handcrafted creation of Don Clark. He makes wooden toys – but don't think grandpa whittling on the back porch, rather – roaring dinosaurs, zooming fast cars, flittering fairies, and the most awesome robots you'll find. Don uses only natural wood (no stains) and only makes products he wants his kids to use (and yes, that he has fun playing with as well). Don's woodshop is in his basement and holds a number of tools, but no lasers. Every piece is cut by hand, sanded silky smooth, and finished with love. Well, linseed oil and beeswax actually - it turns out love doesn't adhere to wood very well.

Love the look, wish the slip where the cards go in was slightly thicker (my company uses thicker than average business cards) so I can only hold about 3-4 at a time in there. Otherwise it's great!

This simple item is lovely to look at and does a great job holding all the miscellaneous notices and postcards I need to keep on my desk and visible, but out of the way. I'd love to have another one of these with a narrower channel designed to hold one or two photos securely. The literature included with the item was a lot of fun to read too. It's not often that such a small purchase brings so many chuckles!

About

Happy Bungalow Makes Fun

Happy Bungalow is the handcrafted creation of Don Clark. An architect by trade, Don picked up working with wood by feel, melding design-school scholarship with trial-and-error toolmanship. He cast off the shackles of the corporate machine, and without a thicket of middle-management to oppress him, Don discovered life is to be enjoyed, not endured.

He clearly missed his calling and is doing his best to make up for lost time. When he's not working wood to bring beauty and fun to the world, he's soldering old appliance parts together, hoping a time machine will emerge.

Don lives in Cincinnati, currently on the same wave of the space-time continuum as you.

It's there he makes wood toys – but don't think grandpa whittling on the back porch, rather – roaring dinosaurs, zooming fast cars, flittering fairies, the most awesome robots you'll find, and the coolest miniature furniture this side of the Alleghenies. Don uses only natural wood (no stains) and only makes products he wants his kids to use (and yes, that he has fun playing with as well). His woodshop holds a number of tools, but no lasers. Every piece is cut by hand, sanded silky smooth, and finished with love. Well, linseed oil and beeswax actually - it turns out love doesn't adhere to wood very well.

We make kid-friendly miniature furniture too, and have another etsy shop dedicated to it: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BungalowMiniatures

    Don is creative by nature. When he's not making fun wood toys he's busy writing, painting, and lazing away afternoons with his family.
