This is the toy excavator from the November Wood Magazine. Made from walnut and maple. I really enjoyed making this, although it has taken several weeks. I have been feeling bad but am feeling better now. Thanks for looking.

Dennis – nice job. I made this around Christmas break and had a good time doing it. Now you can start the other machines in the set!

Did you guys see the current issue of Wood, A fellow made one of these out of aluminum and it looks great. I didn’t know there was a bulldozer coming. I cant wait till September to see it

Very Nice Dennis, I like the contrasting woods. Sorry to hear that you were not feeling well, but I am glad you are doing better. Spending time in the woodshop is the best therapy I can think of.
