Welcome to the Village Woodshop


Since 1978 I have been crafting a variety of fine wooden toys beginning with playthings for my own children. When friends and neighbors began asking me to make toys for them, The Village Woodshop was born.

Today I design, craft and sell my line of toys from my home woodshop with the help of my family.

You’ll probably notice the fine grain and sturdy construction of my wooden toys. I use maple for most of them although I often experiment with new woods and new designs.

Safety is very important to The Village Woodshop. My toys feature finely sanded surfaces, rounded edges, and non-toxic paints. I also use a special technique to ensure that the wheels are securely attached to the axles. These extra touches help create an enduring toy that both you and your children will enjoy for many years. They also make beautiful decorations for the person who has everything or an excellent executive gift for the office that needs a little something special.

I sell my unique line of toys through mail order and at craft shows.

Of course, all my work is guaranteed. Service is as important to me as craftsmanship, so please write if you have any questions, comments or requests. This site includes some of my favorite pieces, and some which my customers often request. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them.
