This tractor is from the scroll-saw workshop website. I decided to change things up a bit and went with contrasting wood colors, and used ebony stain and bright red model paint for the wheels and tires. The chassis and steering wheel are walnut while the grilles, seat, and exhaust stack are poplar. Everything except the axles and steering column are cut out on the scroll saw. The wheels were cut with different hole saws but finished on the scroll saw also. Enjoy :)

I like it! Great idea on the tires and wheels, as that really sets this off and gets your attention.

It looks great, like the cool design, woods used and the paint job. This is sturdy enough to last for many years. Well done!
