My grandson enjoyed the Backhoe loader I made for him so much that I had to try another. This is based off plans in Wood magazine. I made it completely from walnut scraps and Pallet wood I think was lightly spalted maple. I cut out the boom from the pallet wood but the short grain at the pivot points got me a little worried about durability so went back and cut new ones from Baltic Birch. His birthday is next week. We’ll see how he likes it then.
