This is the big circus train that I make.
Fun to make but this one takes time to do.

Every little farmer needs a tractor.

Dimensions:

Length: 7"

Width: 3-1/4"

Height: 3-1/4"

Comes in several different colors.

What I do with a lot of my toys is I will paint them ,let them dry and then I will burn them with a torch then spray them with a clear seiler that's how I get that look.

You are a prolific and passionate master toymaker. What do you do with all these toys?

Well, my problem is I can't make just one of any toy. If it's a small toy I'll make 50-75 of them. If it's a larger toy I'll make at least 5 of them.
We have hundreds of toys and they are all in boxes in our garage. We do sell on Etsy and go to some craft shows.

We make toys wether we sell them or not. When my wife can't find me around the house I am in the shop making toys. When I'm supposed to be doing something my wife asked me to do I try to sneak off into my shop to work on toys.

I want to say my wife does all the painting and most of the assembly.

MOST impressive. For me, after making just one toy (sometimes it's two) I just feel like making something else. Even if I've built a certain toy in the past once before, if I try the same one again a while later then I'll try some "mods" to make it a bit different. "Each to his own" and all that, but a VERY impressive output (AND paint jobs too - personally, my least favourite part of the whole process).
