The Rapid City Woodworkers Association hosted a Toy Workshop at Bob's Buchanan's workshop on Saturday morning May 23, 2009, from 9 am until noon, with lunch served by Mrs. Buchanan. Four toymakers braved the damp air on a holiday weekend to make the trek to the workshop. We were also joined by two guests from the Northern Hills Woodworkers in Spearfish, SD.

We picked up where we left off at our March toy workshop, taking scrap lumber and turning it into toy cars. We traced out about 100 various cars/busses on 2 x stock and drilled axle holes in the 125 cars already in process.

We showed our guests, NHWG president Corky, and member Richard the progress made on current projects, including basketball games, tractors, and numerous car projects. Corky let us know of some of the future presentations he is planning, and invited us to attend their meeting next Thursday evening in Spearfish.

A good time was had by all, and we all enjoyed a good lunch served by Mrs. Buchanan after the workshop.
