I’m going through you project backwards. You have made some awsome wood models Larry. How did you do the hydraulic cylinders? I’m going to add you to my buddy list so I don’t miss the next one.

Hi Devann, for the hydraulic cylinders all i did was center drill a dowel to the same size of a smaller dowel, lightly sanded the smaller one to provide a somewhat snug fit so it will stay in what ever position i put it in but it will still move with little effort. I very much enjoy your bird houses and other works. keep those wood chips flying, i’m looking forward to your next project.

Larry, do you sell the models? if so, I was curious what the firetruck you made that was your design goes for? thanks, great job!
