Location: Mentone, Alabama

I WAS A Retired Electrical Contractor, back to work now in this great economy. I build a lot of what I refer to as "Heritage Toys" Some may be referred to as "Big Boys Toys" also. Trucks and tractors all 100% from wood, no kits, and by hand. I don't have any fancy shop and my tractor wheels are from a machine I made just to make them. My granddaughters benefits from the kids toys I love to make them. Small jobs for specialized cabinets and accents round out my "project list" . I have now added carving on my list of accomplishments. Like all endeavors it is a constant learning progress.

Thanks for the warm welcome, I am sure most of you have a lot more skills than I do, but I will follow along as best I can. I am going to try to download some pictures of one of my tractor projects this morning.

So tiny and addorable. It amazes me, you must have great patience and other words I can’t even spell. I’m thinking you need to make your grandaughter a barbie car though. Really great work!
