    Time for another swap

    First off, who wants to do another swap?

    I want to do something a little out of the box,, this time. How about a toy swap? Even if your kids are grown or you don't have any yet, you can still join up. The toy you receive can be given to a relative or neighbor. You could even put it on a shelf on honor in your house.

    Let me know what your thoughts are and we can hash out some more details.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Sounds good to me. Lots of room for creativity there.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Sure Steve, I'll do it. I guess you'll have to figure out does it have to be something to play with? or just anything for a child?

    And can we use OSB?

    I think I'll take a pass on this one, Steve.

    As a possible 'wrench in the works,' but CPSC came up with some "Rules for Toys" a year or so ago that severely restricts the making of them - even for gifts. Has to do with child-safe finishing and the necessity to actually prove, via lab testing, that whatever finish is on the toy is safe. CPSC said that it would definitely apply both to 'craft show' items and gift items. Last I heard, there was an appeal being planned.

    Not trying to kill your enthusiasm, but you might want to check into this further before proceding.
