Woodworkers spread smiles with toys that don't need batteries

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) One Rapid City hardware store got a makeover this weekend as the local Woodworkers Association transformed the Knecht's on Omaha into a toy store.

It was the group's annual toy show and some 30 members of the association set up shop in the store to display some of their wares.

Many woodworkers also brought their tools and machines with them to demonstrate how they go about their craft. From what we could see, everybody was having a great time.

“It's the ninth time we've done this,” said Bob Buchanan from the Rapid City Woodworkers Association. “We bring in all the toys and projects we've been working on all year just to show people and let people know that we have a woodworking group in town and they can come enjoy and have fun with us.”

Members of the association build toys all year round and deliver more than 2,000 to area charities during the Christmas season.
