Before I bought a CNC machine, I did these with a scroll saw. I don’t think I’ll go back. The Excavator was an idea of equipment I used to have when I owned a Large Equipment Rental company in Utah that I sold 23-years ago. Now all I do is play with my equipment (toys) in my shop.

Both are nice work.
I do like the 30’s vintage truck better though.

Still something about doing the work by actual eye and hand instead of electronics has a lot of appeal.

Great job on both. The CNC router is a game changer. I don’t think people who don’t have one appreciate what it takes to turn out a quality product like the vehicles you have shown here. You don’t just clamp a piece of wood to the machine, turn it on and come back to a ready to paint item.
There is a fair amount of traditional woodworking involved.
