I thought this would be a great first project to post. I made this for my grandpa’s 75th birthday. I wanted to make him a tractor, but I couldn’t find any plans. A week before his birthday, a was over at my neighbors and his little by had this John Deere tractor. I borrowed it and took my measurements for it. Everything was hand made except for the axle an plugs for the wheels.
After I completed it, I showed it to one of my woodworking buddies and he just sat there rolling it back and forth on the table. I knew then that I would have to build a case to keep all the grand kids from playing with it. The plaque reads “A Dad & Grandpa At Heart, But A Farmer Forever!” Made from walnut and maple.
