I had worked as a fork lift driver for most of my working life and I liked this machine very much. I made this wooden 260 mm long replica to remind me with my life before retirement. I found it so cute that I didn’t feel to take my eyes away from looking at it. Hope you like it as much as I do. Oh, and the fork can be lifted and lowered by hand to the level you like.

Very nice Sam. I hope you enjoyed making such a wooden toy. It can be addictive.

I saw the first picture on the LJ home page and thought, “why would someone put a picture of a forklift here?” Then I clicked it and it’s a miniature AND made of wood! I swear I thought it was real.

Very nice job. All of the toy guys amaze me with their work.

Hah! Great Photography too. I clicked on the thumbnail to figure out why someone was posting a picture of a forklift instead of wooden projects. :-)

Seems like someone wasn’t quite ready for retirement.
Neat project. Well done.
