All in a day's work for you Martin, but a peek behind the curtain to see what the master toy maker is creating is fascinating!

Hi Martin,
I do find this interesting, it's like watching "The Repair Shop".

Best wishes,
Martin Buck

Agreed. I do like these little insights into how our toys get made. Would be really nice to see some pictures; but, if it distracts and impinges upon sculpting new things, I can live without pictures 😉

I really enjoy the Repair shop.
My worry is that some of those skills will die with the repairers. Although the woodwork and metal chaps are quite young. The clock man is excellent. He should be making tank models.

The Birmingham School of Jewellery (where my brother trained) is still running horology (watch and clock) classes, so there should be some new blood coming through. I have picked up that some of the repairers are on their second career, so there is hope.

Best wishes,
Martin Buck

The Repair Shop will be replaced by "The 3D Printing and CAD Workshop".......
"Will he manage to clear the printing nozzle in time?"
"Will struggles to design and print his plastic handle upside down without sufficient support struts...."
"Workshop closes due to power cuts as a result of Brexit...." 😊

The lady who does the leatherwork is the clock man's sister.

They are both equally calming
