A toymaker press Trex I made for my youngest son Ryan who is at the moment obsessed with Trex. It is made of pine. I added the 2 dowels in the hind legs hoping it will survive Ryan.

Great looking. I am cutting some of those right now….for the Grandkids. I like the idea of the dowel…just might help to hold the legs on. I also like the train/truck I see in the back ground. Of late I have had a ball making all types of toys.
