Well, for those who have been following my construction models….here’s the last one for awhile. My wife has TOLD me that she needs a book shelf….so more toys will have to wait until later.This one took about 8 days to build…a little more involved than I thought…but still quite do-able. Again, these plans were taken from Wood magazine. Thanks for looking.

Hey Prez
That’s a wonderful excavator ,The time you spent making it sure shows in quality workmanship of the finished piece.

Very nice. I like the detail, use of various woods, and the workmanship. I’ll have to look into those plans in the future as I would like to make some toys of this quality.

Ed….Yes, they’re a lot of work…but also a lot of enjoyment too. I just finished the bob cat and if I can find the plans again…will do the tractor and that should be the last of the series…some grandson or ‘sons’ will enjoy them in the future….

Did you see the Peterbilt project? Guy did an outstanding job!
