Just completed this tractor like most of the models I make it does involve some turning and as it takes a little time I am not filling the house with bowls and other turning. I started this the loco and a truck all on the 17th of may this year and this is the last of the three. Finished with acrylic sander sealer and satin lacquer. Measures 11 1/2” L X 6 1/2” W X 7” T

Neat job digger. Great choice of contrasting timber.

Are the small dowels turned or dyed?

Bet you had ”fun” making that steering wheel!

Did not take long I turned it on the lathe and then took out the three segmants and with a little filing one steering wheel took about 1 hour.

That was mahogany from a recycled shelf unit. I get most of my wood that way
