My youngest grandson had his 5th birthday recently. I made this little front end loader for him. Been a while since I did any of this type of woodworking. Really was fun.

Looks like you took Wood magazines front end loader and improved on it. I really like what you did with the wheels.

That should give a lot of hours of enjoyment.

Very nicely done!

Just the right amount of detail, and not to delicate to still be a PLAYABLE toy!
