    hello from PA

    Hello. Just joined here in hopes of expanding my woodworking skills. I have been interested in woodworking most of my life but am nowhere near being an expert or "master" craftsman. My goal is to hone my skills at toy making, mostly vehicles and game boards, and then sell them at local craft shows. Any help in leads to project plans would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
