Sorry about the picture. I can’t seem to figure out how to post a video. You can probably quess the head and tail go in and out as he is pushed. This guy is one of my earlier designs but I have changed it quite a bit as well as rescaling it. If you check out the youtube link, you can see how he works. If you like this guy you might want to check out my article in current Woodcraft magazine, my website at and my upcoming book with Fox Chapel Press this summer.

Very cool, David!
Happy to see that the guy who designed the toys that so many other LumberJocks have made has finally come aboard.
Congrats on the Woodcraft article and best of luck with your upcoming book.
