wooden farm tractors

To all the people of the world wide web; The first thing I'd like to tell you is I made a new years resolution, and that was to post an entry on my blog site every day all year, and create world peace. Well the first part hasn't been going so well but I am going to try harder, and the second part isn't going well either, But I think I can pull it off. One thing I am doing is making toys. I just talked to one of my many many readers on the phone and she asked me to put pictures of some of the tractors I make on my blog. So here thy are. I'm assuming she meant farm tractors. I also made a bunch of new semi tractors.
I made one kind so far, modeled after the tractor's of the good old days. I gave them two different paint jobs. The one above is colored to roughly match a farm all, and the one below to look like a John deer. Everyone that's seen them seems to like them. As a matter of fact I just brought them from the shop a few days ago and I only have two left for next Christmas, the rest I gave away already. I'm definitely going to half to make a lot more.

That's all I have to say right now. I have to work a half day tomorrow I haven't done that for a while, I can hardly want.

Hi Skip! I joined blogging and had so much fun reading your blog. I still have the train set you made for the girls like 20+ years ago! I haven't been able to hang on to much over the years but the train set I still have! I remember thinking how nice it was for you to take your time to make them for the girls, each piece being unique and special. One day I will pass them on to the girls to give to their children, just haven't been able to part with them yet! Personal favorite tractor is the John Deere look alike! Michelle T.
