One of our fellow LumberJocks (MtnWild) has given me over the years some large oak beams reclaimed from heavy equipment pallets. This train was created from the the resawn lumber from one of those beams. Not my design, I found it in an old toy making book a few years ago. A new car is created every year and now this train is 8’ long. And Tucker T is one of my best friends.

-- Some of my most creative moments have been when I've had to cover up an error in my woodworking.

Nicely done, and it’s a gift that keeps giving. Looks like it will be around for a few generation’s.

Cool man…

Saw the pictures before, love them…but did not know I helped make them…Free wood is the best…

I would not make most of my projects if I had to spend money on the wood…
