Another timber model toy. This one is a scaled john deere combine harvester. I took various front, side, top on pictures of harvesters, built up a sketchup model, and this is the result. Few different timbers used in this one, pine, brigalow for the wheels, iron bark for the main body. The front actually spins, and the auger swings out.

Outstanding. I need to make some wooden toys for my Grandson – this is a really nice piece, although I don’t think I would let my 4 year old Grandson play with it – just yet.

That is very cool! I grew up on a farm in NW Iowa and I would have loved to have a toy combine as cool as that!
Nice job.

Thanks guys. will upload a few more photos of it in the next couple of days. @ccanderson102 hey mate, all the wheels have been lathed individually on a face plate. the front wheels are made to look like duals, but are just one piece.

I know this post was posted a while but I was wondering if there was any way it could pay to have one of these made?
