After seeing the bed Neil Davis built for his grandson, I thought I would post the tractor bed my Dad and I built for my son. He is a tractor nut but is especially crazy about John Deere. The bed is modeled after my Dad’s 4310. The body is made of MDF and the roll bar and front is made from pine. My son takes pride in showing everyone that the lights really do work. It is very heavy and had to be assembled in pieces. Like so many of my projects, I built it about 400 times in my head before actually starting. My Dad who is brilliant woodworker built the wheels. I just had to tell what I wanted them to look like then stand back and be amazed. This was a lot of fun to design and build but more important my son loves it.
