Qué harás

This activity will be tailored to your level of woodworking skills; from beginner to experienced. You will be reclaiming cedar wood to create an heirloom, movable, durable toy to enjoy or pass on to someone special. Some of these toys, that were made 30 years ago, are still being displayed by my nephews and nieces.

The day will begin with 2-3 hours in the shop cutting, shaping and gluing parts for your chosen toy.
To allow time for the glue to dry, you will have 1 hour of private time in the afternoon to:
- hike on trails through the woods on our 30 acres
- walk or drive down (1/3 mile) to the year-round creek to swim or simply commune with the natural forest here on our property
- pick vegetables from our large, seasonal garden for a luncheon salad
- simply relax in creekside hammocks or patio furniture
- explore the wonderful historic and forested charm of Nevada County
- use our hot tub overlooking our creek and wooded canyon

The afternoon will involve 1-2 additional hours in the shop to complete your heirloom toy to take home and relish the accomplishment of having created an amazing product.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:
When working around power tools it is highly recommended that you wear closed shoes and have no loose hanging jewelry or shirt sleeves that may get snagged in the machines.

We are Airbnb Superhosts and I am a lifelong woodworker with a completely outfitted shop. I have made hundreds of toys over the years and rarely sold one. The act of giving to family, friends and charitable organizations has been my passion here and during our years living and working overseas in Thailand.
The shop is designed for woodworkers to read plans, prepare wood parts use power and hand tools, glue/assemble your choice of vehicles (Model T, Paddlewheel boat, Biplane or Steam Locomotive) and take home your creation. You will be making your toy from clean, planed, RECYCLED cedar wood.
Shop safety, proper use of power cutters, drills and sanders will be part of the experience. During the afternoon lunch break, waiting for glued parts to dry, for you may pick seasonal salad items from our garden or explore on your own.

Fun experience! Danny has all the tools in his wood shop on his bottom level of his home. I took my dad as an Xmas gift, he was much better than I was. Danny has options so you can either put the toy together or make it for almost every part. I tried to do the hard parts and was quite slow but luckily he had all the other parts ready to go for me. I made a model t and my pops did the plane and he did pretty much the entire plane with his own woodworking. So the levels were matched.

We had a wonderful experience creating toys under Danny's close guidance. We felt like we were in Santa's workshop! The different levels of difficulty allowed to make sure we would leave with finalized toys. It was great to have provided clean 95 masks that we could use to protect from dust from the machines. We gained confidence with the machines as the day went by and were finally very proud of our creations! Finally, their house is in a wonderful valley, so just driving there feels like you are entering a new dimension!

BEST time ever! Our group of "mature" women, with no woodworking experience had the best time making birdhouses. Danny is the most patient teacher we have ever met. He created this experience to fit our needs and abilities. We had the best time building our own birdhouse and the setting was just stunning. We took a picnic lunch at enjoyed on Danny's beautiful veranda overlooking the most stunning views. WOULD recommend this experience for anyone wanting to just have a great time: no matter your ability level.

I took Danny's workshop while staying at his Airbnb. It was fun and memorable! He is attentive and makes sure you are safe and comfortable with tools. If you've been curious about woodworking try this workshop.

Also Danny was so generous giving my daughter something he build. This experience worth repeating we decide to stay at his place few days for multi day wood workshop.
