Tractor case for my Son

While getting her Christmas decorations out this year my wife found some of my middle son’s toy tractors she though she had lost. He used to play with these when he was a kid. He is now 40 so it has been a while. I made a shadow box for him to keep them in and we gave both to him for Christmas. When he saw this his face lit up and you could see a little tear come in his eyes.

I made it from oak and used silicone to keep the glass in. I used a magnet as a door latch.

Hunter71 I have never tried small toys but like they say “You’ll never learn it any younger”. Might have to try it sometime.

Tom this isn’t all of the tractors. My wife just stuck a few in to take the pic. You must like AC tractors.
