For my son's seventh birthday, my dad made him some toy trucks. He made him a tractor (that looks sort of like a cross between a HET and a Kenworth),

I figured you guys would enjoy seeing them, so I snapped a couple of pics of them while they are still photogenic.

Those are just pretty cool. I don't know of any seven year old boy who wouldn't love those.

Very cool! My brother makes wooden toys as well- mostly farm tractors and boats. He's got to see this!

Here are a few more that my dad has made over the last few years: a car carrier (looks a little like a Ford Model TT),

Let's just say that since his retirement, he has enjoyed spending time in hit workshop making toys for his 5 grandkids. He's made all sotrs of things: a barn, baby pull toys, rubber-band powered dragsters (they actually didn't work as well as planned), doll houses, train, biplane, & a helecopter. We've started to call him "Geppetto"! :D
