Maryville, Mo. — Frank Trump has always had a passion for making things by hand out of wood.
The 70-year-old retired teacher grew up on a farm near Trenton, where there were ample opportunities to shape and join lumber, and he soon began collecting vintage tools of the woodworker's art.
"Making things out of wood has always been my hobby, and I have never thought about making it a business because then I wouldn't enjoy it anymore," Trump said last week during an Old Arts demonstration at the Nodaway County Historical Society Museum in Maryville.
