area artists offer beautiful and GIFT kidding around...
TOYMAKER OF SOUTHPORT IN an age of electronics, Paul Guerin still handcrafts toys from
wood with the precision and durability of years past. Most repre-sent
transportation and work vehicles, including tow trucks, trains,
cranes and more. Each toy takes a full day to make. Instead of nails,
he relies on dowel rods and glue to hold the playthings together.
Guerin, who retired about eight years ago from his carpentry career,
began making toys for his children in his garage.
