Simply Resourceful

Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

Truck & Trailer Toy

It's a good thing my son doesn't know how to use a computer yet!  His birthday may not be until late October, but I just finished his second toy.  All of my projects use scrap wood left over from other projects.  I don't have a hole-saw, so I purchase all of my wheels from a local carpentry shop.  It is rewarding to make Paul's gifts.  Besides a basic woodworking class in middle school, I have no formal training.  Jon and I pick up carpentry skills as we go along.  I enjoy the challenge of finding the right piece of wood and cutting it just right.

Below are a few toys that I have made in the last 1.5 years for Paul.
