ME VISITARON LOS PADRES DE UNA NENA PARA ENCARGARME UN TRENCITO PARA ELLA…
YO HABÍA DESARMADO UN ESCRITORIO DE LOS AÑOS 70 Y TENGO UNAS CUANTAS PATAS CILÍNDRICAS, COMO DE 3 PULGADAS DE DIÁMETRO QUE ME SERVIRÍAN PARA LA MÁQUINA A VAPOR!!!!!!
EL RESTO DE LOS VAGONES, NO ERA PROBLEMA, YA QUE LOS CLIENTES QUERÍAN: LA LOCOMOTORA, UN CARGUERO DE CARBÓN Y UN FURGÓN DE COLA DE COLORES FEMENINOS, PERO NO QUERÍAN UN TRENCITO ROSADO ;-)
YA LO TERMINÉ, ASÍ QUE ESPERO SUS OPINIONES COLEGAS!!!!!!

VISITED ME BABY ONE PARENT TO ORDER a small train for her …
I WAS REMOVING A DESK OF 70 YEARS AND I HAVE A FEW FEET CYLINDRICAL AS OF 3 INCHES IN DIAMETER THAT I WOULD FOR STEAM MACHINE !!!!!!
THE REST of the cars was no problem, because customers wanted: the Locomotive, a cargo of charcoal and a caboose of feminine colors, but I wanted a small train PINK;-)
AND THE END, SO I HOPE YOUR THOUGHTS COLLEAGUES !!!!!!

Disculpame KOVA, pero voy a hacer el trabajo de interpreter para tu nota,

as my buddy KOVA was saying, he had a visit by the parents of a young girl who commisioned him to make a toy train for the girl. As it happened, Kova had taken apart a seventy year old desk which had round legs of about 3” diameter. With these he was able to fashion the steam engine. For the other cars, no problem, the parents wanted the locomotive, a coal car and a kabooz, female colors but not a pink train ;-)
I’m done with it, I hope to hear your opinions fellow wood workers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Forgive me everyone for doing away with the snapfish translator and doing a personal one. Think of it like your dovetail jig vs the hand made ones, but in this case the jig has been poorly set. Don’t want to sound boastful, but I think mine is more accurate. Like hand made dovetails, I’m sure a mishap, I mean mispell is probably there somewhere.

Kova, me parece genial el trensito, estoy seguro la niña lo disfrutara. Espero te hayan pagado bien! ;-)

Fabulous KOVA!

These unique handmade toys always have more charm, value and historical significance than all of today’s factory made plastic junk. They are also imbued with love, an impossible material not found in the ‘sweat shops’.

Good job and thanks for posting this delightful creation.

Pretty cool.

I think my spanish is a tad rusty though, I thought he said either the mother or the girl was 70 years old :X

That little girl will love this. Nice job. Best part I read is “re-purposed materials used. I LIKE THIS “
