Well, it’s been awhile but I’m back in my mancave and hard at work! This is my first attempt at making wooden models and I must say, I enjoyed it! More to come for sure….
This idea came from my Wood magazine November edition. They have really good plans there.
The grader is approx 17 inches long, made of ash and walnut. I finished it using regular cooking oil from my wife’s kitchen.
The hardest part of the whole project was finding those small parts like axles, wheels, headlights, etc…I was forced to improvise and made a few of the parts myself. I guess you can’t go down to the HH store anymore to find some of these parts…found a supply at Lee Valley and will order some for my next project.
Anyway, it was an enjoyable project….now I have to figure out “who” gets it for Christmas….heheheh (or should I say hohoho! )
