About Damaris Toy Works


opened my toy workshop on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in 2012 with a commitment to creating safe, unique wooden toys made in the USA.
All of my wooden toys are designed to engage the imagination and creativity of little minds of all ages. Handcrafted from sustainably harvested hard woods with non-toxic finishes, these toys and puzzles are designed to last for generations. 


+  All my toys and puzzles are designed and handcrafted in the USA.

+  Toys and puzzles are made from sustainably harvested hardwoods.

+   Whenever possible, I use "end cuts" or "left overs"  from other craftsmen or        woodworkers helping to reduce the amount of waste headed to our landfills.  

+  All  toys and puzzles are finished with non-toxic, 100% natural tung oil       and 100% orange thinner (except paddle boat and colored toy pieces).
+  Paddle boats are finished with Danish oil.  The manufacturer states the 

     finish is non -toxic  30 days after application.
Colored toy pieces are stained with water based stain.

+  Wheels, people and small parts are glued in place using non-toxic glue. 
+  Check small pieces periodically and re-glue if necessary.
+    Wood tone, grain, and wheels may vary from photo.
