This was a project from many years ago…. Made of all cherry wood, with no finish. Woodburned the details in. Bucket and arms all work, as well as the main cab turns. Kids always want to play with it, but that is why it is on the upper shelf. Too easy to break! It is 8 inches long, 7 inches high when down. Tracks were made by grooving on bandsaw, and then wood burning each tread. I love doing this, but just don’t take the time to do these mini projects anymore….. Oh how I miss those days!
