Playing Elves… Toys from scratch

DH and I volunteered at the Sawdust Shop in December to make wooden toys for homeless children. It was so much fun we asked for the patterns so we could make more at home. Nephew Calvin’s Christmas present will arrive a bit late, but hopefully it’s so much fun he won’t mind the tardiness.Here’s a few pictures of us working in our little “workshop”. The “car carrier” is made out of a single chunk of “2 by 4″. We ended up using absolutely every wood working tool in our new shop! And obviously Julie’s excellent painting skills really moved from this “toy” into “work of art”.

Pretty neat, huh?
