Looks great, my boys are always asking for me to build stuff. The next thing on the list is a Star Wars gun. Do not know what that means yet, I am sure I will find out.

Nothing better in life than to see a smile and the look of wonderment in a childs eyes, and it even better when it a grandchild. That for posting and the how to video.

That is a wonderful toy bulldozer you made hope Henry gets years of fun out of it. I plan on making a toy bulldozer when I get some time to but mine will have moving tracks on it and maybe some other moving parts on it to.

Hi jeff, thanks for you comments. My grandson is still a bit young for moving parts stuff, I think it important not to give them anythink that might have stuff that could end up down little throats. but to my delight my oldest son expressed a desire to learn woodworking from his Dad so we are building a model Kenworth truck and trailer together and he is 36. never to young :o)#
