Hi Everyone:

I just built the Super Mack Tractor and enjoyed the build.  I used poplar, walnut, oak, and birch.  I have attached three photos for your amusement.  

There are a couple of unique things.  Firstly, I like light arrays, and instead of using only dowels or open holes for the lights, I actually installed some contrasting lights in the front and the back.

Secondly, I jokingly said to my wife that the seat would look great with a fabric covering on it.  She made one!  She put an elastic band on the edges so that it holds to the back and doesn't slip down.  Awesome.

Keep building!

What a joy to see.
 Beautiful fit and finish and careful detailing.
 I do love these toys built with multiple timbers.

Just look what you started
The leather was a little too thick for tiny seats but I think it will clean up
