Very nicely done.

I also like the use of “scrap” wood.

Neat toy. I bet you tried it on that glue bottle too! I know I would have!

That’s one nice toy, I would hate to see it all dirty but that’s where the fun is.

Your nephew is a lucky little boy.
I’m sure he will get hours and hours of joy from your efforts.
I built the Crane a few years ago for my grandson and he still plays with it today.

Merry Christmas!

First Class hand made wooden toy Matt….

The little bloke will love it and enjoy it for a long time, top marks!

But there’s about a dozen in the “Construction Series” so you may be busy for a while!

Christmas is giving….

Nicely done! It will be perfect for picking up and putting away his LEGO pieces when done playing.

Thanks everyone! I’m sure it will be broken and glued back many times in years to come but as long as he enjoys it I’m happy
