    The fleet is ready for shipment

    Last week I noted that I was building a bunch of pull toys for the local Shriners group to give to hospitalized children. Except for a few blocks which go on the back of the trucks and trains it is ready to go.

    Last year our group gave 640 such toys to the Shriners. This year I guess we may beat that record.

    No paint, they prefer them unfinished - though I did put on one coat of dewaxed shellac.

    Great looking toys and a great cause. Hats off to you
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
