For Families

Build a classic toy train, modeled after the toys of children from earlier years. These trains last a life-time, and make for the perfect toy to be played with for years! With unending decorating possibilities, this toy train introduces a child to the fundamentals of building and crafting with wood.

The parts of this project are all produced and cut by our team of apprentices. Ages 13-18, apprentices become very skilled in manufacturing tools, which allows them to create beautiful pieces that will become your very own train.
