Toy Workshop - March 26th, 2011

Toymakers were greeted by 3" of wet icy snow on Saturday morning, just when we thought spring had sprung, but that didn't stop us from making sawdust.

Grant C, Gary G, Gary K, Lauren L, and Bob B got together to drill out pivot holes in 120 helicopter rotors, drill out 4 passenger windows (3/4 " diameter) in each of 100 busses, and drivers windows (1" diameter) in the same 100 busses. The next task was tracing out about 50 crayon vans. Then we spent some time cleaning and fixing up our shop-vac, so we could clean up all the sawdust! All in all - it was a pretty productive day!


Kids are the reason we make toys. They do grow fast - this is the cradle delivered to CA last summer - the little guy is 8 months old and he's already pushing out the top and bottom of his cradle! Young parents - take time with them while they are little, they won't stay that way long!
