  • Logging truck and forklift

    Roughly based on a toy I played with when I was a few years younger. The son of my girlfriend plays with it when we visit my parents. Somebody asked if I could make something like that, and here it is.
    It still needs some minor work, sanding and clear lacquer. Total length of the truck is 53 cm, made from beech and aluminium.

    Very nice! I'm a truck driver so I really like anything to do with trucks.

    It's not about what saw you drive. It's about the skill you drive it with.

      Spectacular! What a wonderful job!

      If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

          Good work Bob. I am currently visiting my son in Northern Sweden and we see trucks like this on the road wherever we go around here.

            I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

            I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

            Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

            Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time. My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
