  • 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.

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

            I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

            Shrink wrap systems
            by Linda In Phoenix
            What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

            Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!
