You may recognize these projects from the wood working magazine “Wood”. I built the tower crane for one grandson last Christmas and then the backhoe for his little brother this Christmas. Both projects are made from Soft Maple and Walnut. Not difficult at all and very impressive pleasers for future construction workers

Those are awesome toys… I’m glad to notice that still some people take the effort of building wooden toys instead of just buying those plastic ones.

These are great! And functional. I’ve been thinking about doing some for the grandkids, these are good ideas.
