Saturday September 30th, 2017: 9 am to Noon - Toy Workshop at CFB Shop
The fourth week of our fall toy-making marathon!
Warm weather returned to the Hills today, so we could setup routers and sanders outside again. We started bilding tugboats, finished up parts for basketball games, completed a small project for the Club for Boys, and finished a large number of wheeled toys. Last week we ran out of wheels. Today we had wheels left over and ran out of toys.
