Nothing special, just a 2×4 and a little bit of oak. Routered their name and the year into the bottom so they would remember when they got them.

AS a toy-maker myself; I think you do great work.

I love the Bobcat.

Years ago, I met Louis Keller who with his broter Cyril is credited with inventing the skidsteer loader.

Rollag MN had the history of them as one of the exhibits one year. Some of the first few have ended up back in the Keller relatives collections.

Simple, evocative and functional – a great combination. I like the bed shape on the pickup trucks.

I cut the bed out on the router table, the first piece I cut out of the block of wood was the area behind the cab and above the box then cranking a straight bit up high with the truck upside down.

G’day Mike,
Quote “nothing special” – WELL NO WAY, I love them both the skid-steer loader & the utes….
I would have loved to see a few more photos & some dimensions, please…
Cheers from On Top DownUnder, crowie
