About Me

Capricorn Crafts banner

Capricorn Crafts began in 1975 and has always created handmade products in wood.

I have always had a fascination with traditional wooden toys and have made a variety of items over the years.

A very successful product and still made today, are the handmade wooden string puppets. These puppets have a unique stringing method which make the puppet actions very versatile and much easier to use and sort out when in a muddle.

I also enjoy making a variety of traditional wooden trains, lorries, trucks and fire engines. All of these are solidly build and give pleasure for many years to come.

I love finding traditional games and make a number of these in pine and various hardwoods. The majority of the base boards are turned and polished on the lathe and top quality marbles are used as playing pieces. Typical games in this section are French and English Solitaire, Mindbender, Triangular Solitaire, Squaret, Alberque, Nine Mens Morris and Chinese Checkers.
