Now that’s one very special birthday gift though I also like the video with your young son supplying the engine noise…that is as special to grandparents as the hand made wooden model…TOP JOB!!

Great job on the skidder, I live in a logging community, and have done several skidder models. One is a model of a skidder I bought last year for getting firewood on my place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nR3_rOmmTeo The model is in my projects.
