Beautiful!
I like the stripe on the roof and all the different colors of the wood!

Man, that is some awesome work! I just love it. I am working on the very one myself and if I do just half as good as you I will count myself as happy.

Well done!

Masterful carving has brought these wood toys up to museum quality. Truly these are collector choices. Thanks for the fine photos and for sharing your talent with us.

I am extremely impressed.  Need to make one of these myself.  I like the natural look.  What kind of finish did you use?

This red oak and pine the stain was natural and Mahogany for the fenders. Then Krylon clear satin.  I didn't want high gloss on these.

Not yet some day when I get enough done I want to . I don't have a lot of time I still work full time. My wife is handicap with sever RA and is confined to a wheelchair I must take care of her and do ever thing around home. That doesn't leave me much time to work in the shop.
