Thank you to Crown Point Cabinetry for your assistance to Heritage Mills in our wooden toy project.
Twenty years ago, ‘Bobby’ Stocker of Acworth, NH, started creating toys from furniture he found at the town dump and hardwoods building contractors removed from historic houses they were remodeling. Over the years he has made over 2000 toys from new and old wood which has enriched the lives of poor, abused, and homeless, children in hospitals, shelters, and social welfare organizations. His craftsmanship and designs have been praised by artists and industrial leaders. His shop, a converted small horse stall, under an outside building is proof that creative people can do wonders.
Bobby now has ALS and is severely restricted in movement making Christmas toys this year for many underserved children. Heritage Mills, an educational non-profit, is assisting his Christmas toy production. However, our non-profit did not receive all the funding needed to build the toys in time for the Christmas/holiday season. Crown Point Cabinetry became aware of the time sensitive and financial challenge Heritage Mills had to make the toys. The management of Crown Point and the artists and the highly technical woodworking craftsmen, women and specialists stepped up to offer to cut out the car patterns saving many hours of production time in a small cold shop with outdated woodworking tools. The simplified toy designs all have a STEM theme to encourage the interest of children in aerodynamic designs which save energy. Heritage Mills will try to keep the legacy of ‘Bobby’ building creative wooden toys for underserved children in the future.
From all the challenged children the toys will bring joy and special meaning; thank you Crown Point Cabinetry.
