When I ran across the pattern for this toy wooden tugboat, I just had to make one, and it has proven to be a good seller. I cut the parts in my shop on a scroll saw, glued them together, and added the accessories. Although this was made as a child's toy, I have had one person purchase this as a gift to a retiring colleague (she added a company logo to it before presenting the tugboat), and one to a former sailor on a seagoing tugboat. Both were very pleased with their purchases.• Hull is painted red, funnel is black
• Tugboat measures approximately 7 3/4" long by 3 " wide and 4 1/2" tall
• Great seller

I am a U.S. Army Vietnam veteran, and have an MBA with a marketing concentration. I worked in retail management, then outside sales in the HVAC and refrigeration industry. I drove a limo for a year, then went to work at a large for-profit university. I worked as an admissions officer, then moved into student finance. I was also an adjunct faculty member, teaching courses in marketing. I retired in January 2020 and now devote as many hours as I wish per week to my woodworking business.

My wife of 50 years and I live in a rural area about 50 miles southwest of Chicago. Our two grandchildren live in Georgia so we do not see them as often as we  would like. Woodworking began as a hobby, then I started selling at local craft shows in this area area and later moved to online sales. I enjoy making wooden toys and home decor items and have shipped over 1,000 orders all over the U.S. and even as far away as Australia. All my products are made from sustainable hardwoods such as poplar, oak, maple, and walnut which I purchase locally.

Most items are in stock and orders are shipped the next business day. If there will be any significant delay, I will notify the customer via e-mail. Small items are shipped via USPS First Class Mail or USPS Priority Mail., and larger or heavier items go via UPS. I do accept custom orders, and terms for those are agreed upon in advance between myself and the customer.
