Here is a Circus train I built last month for our 2 yr old Granddaughter. My wife’s painting skills always make my projects look much better. Cars were 5” wide, 8” long approx. The roof of the last car comes off because Violets wanted it that way.

-- Larry in Hawaii,

You and your wife make an excellent team Larry. The train is beautiful and I am sure your granddaughter is loving it.

Larry, that is absolutely beautiful, great job with both wood and painting.
Love the animals as well.
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Larry you knocked this one out of the park – well done my friend. Violet should cherish that Heirloom for many, many years to come.
