Toymaker Michael Brown brings tools of his trade to Hereford library
All it took was a wooden peg and round piece of wood for Michael Brown to make a wooden top that immediately caught the interest of his young audience. A toymaker and historian, Brown gave a talk on traditional American wooden toys and demonstrated how to make some of them at the Hereford branch of the Baltimore County Public Library on Jan. 18. Best of all, the girls and boys who attended the event got to try out — under Brown's watchful eye — some of the simple tools used to make toys.
