Hello to All, and welcome to Grandpa's Wood Shed. On this site, you will find some puzzles and toys, boxes, baskets and bowls, ornaments, and some custom, one-of-a-kind items, all hand crafted from wood. My bowls are usually oiled and finished with shellac for a nice sheen and durability. I typically leave my toys and ornaments in natural wood, or finish with a non-toxic child safe finish. Wooden toys and puzzles are a thing of beauty, made to be played with and can be handed down many generations.
NOTE: As with any toy, however, parents need to take precaution and buy age appropriate toys. No toy is completely 'child proof'. Almost any toy can be broken, and small pieces can become a choking hazard - wooden toys are no exception.
On this site, you will also find examples of custom portraits that I've made in wood. These are actual, personal pictures that I made a pattern from, and then I cut the pattern into the wood to make a 'shadow portrait' - a one of a kind heirloom to pass down for generations to come. Please peruse this site and the different categories of products available. Perhaps you will find that special one of a kind item for yourself, or for a loved one. Feedback is always welcomed.
