This gallery shows some of the novelty items I have made such as wooden toys,and wooden engines that operate like a steam engine but run on compressed air. I do not carry much of an inventory so what you see here may have already been gifted, sold or donated for charity.  However, if you see something you like I can make a similar one keeping in mind of course that no two pieces of wood are identical.  Or I can make a custom item to your specifications.  Contact me and let me know what you would like and I will do my best to meet your custom needs.  If any show "Available" contact me for pricing.
Sorry but I do not accept orders from outside of the USA. There is just too much red tape.

An online store may be offered in the future but until then please contact JD directly if you want to order any custom wood product.

Check me out on My Facebook page or my J&J WoodSmith Facebook page, I post pics of my work on those as well.
