I have been all tied up with my carving and had not even worked on a piece of equipment in so long. Then fellow L/J, johnstoneb posted a neat little backhoe and I just had to make one. A bit of a modification from his design but I feel it will be a tough little guy that will do a good life’s work in any sandbox. I scaled it to my “play with” dump truck so they will all fit together somewhat. Thanks for the inspiration to make this.
I have had a few emails from others that I might switch over to carving, no way, just a new past time and challenge, I will still make trucks, tractors and wagons. One idea I have on the radar might be a Funeral Wagon that is hand carved. Best of both trades?
