I love the low-boy. Very, very impressive.
Is it from a ToymakingPlans plan?

Hi hobbitgp, welcome to the site. Thank you! Yes, all of these are from ToymakingPlans plans. I did these last Christmas for my nephew, he's the one riding the low-boy. I milled the wood from beetle killed pine that I use for fire wood.

Hi Peter, I actually did two last week.  I did the 1935 Ciccarelli Woody Wagon and Trailer, and the Fantastika Fire Engine Play Set. I was in such a rush I forgot to take photos. I will have to try to get some posted later. I also plan on starting the Hill Billy Hot Rods soon, But first I'm building a Cat track skid steer bed I designed for my nephew. I have no kids of my own, so he gets it all. Everyone thinks I'm spoiling him. 
I am. I'm just building the stuff I wanted when I was a kid, back when rocks were soft.

Brilliant workmanship....looks amazing... And yes wooden toys are much better than the plastic rubbishy everyone buys from China in the shops nowadays...well done to you.

Thanks for the kind words Frogbucket and Rob. I think most everyone here would say the same thing; just take your time, and if you aren't feeling it, take a break. I know 
I go in streaks. Sometimes I'm all in and sometimes I have to walk away.

Great advice   Too often I continue when I’m frustrated and start making stupid errors.  I set deadlines for myself which there is no reason for. Being retired my only real deadline is with the Grim Reaper 
Thanks for your advice.
