Maker Interview: Wooden Toymaking

Watch this maker interview with woodworker Chris Bandy of Bandy Woodworks! Chris visited The MAKESHOP™ with his collection of handmade wooden toys and woodworking tools. Kid makers helped him sand, saw and stain to create tic-tac-toe boards, puzzles, trucks and more. Bandy Woodworks uses local, sustainable wood, so Chris also brought rough logs and photos to show kids where he gathers fallen trees for the wood to make his toys.
