I started one in off topic with a redirect to your post with the pic. Tell Mom we said congrats as well.


Thanks for the redirect mate. The lady says thanks and she was very pleased to know that theres other things on this addictive forum than machines talk with a bunch of single minded grime lovers like meself. Lol

Greetings mate,

WOW!!! Thats realy nice. Did you make that?
My wood working skills are not as good as that but this kind of tickles my ''I wanna try to '' bone :)
Its an awesome idea, I realy think I should try and make something like it. Now would be a good time to start.

Although I've a ton o work to do round the house to get ready for the next Canadian citizen. Theres the barn I was already workin on to transform into a workshop for my toys (snowmobiles and now tractor) in order to free the basement. Then ive to build new bedrooms in the basement to get the kids downstairs so me and the lady can move upstairs with the babe. Aside from that 4 years ago the house was renovated by contractors that didnt care much about the end result. I now have to tear off all kinds to re-insulate the walls and also re-enforce the roof trusts. So the house remains safe and warm for us all. BUT I will try and make something for the lil one that he/she will be proud to hold on to till old age. Add to that the social crisis we are involved in over here.... Thanks for this idea mate, I WILL seriously consider it :D

Not my hand mate, saw it on CL right around the time the good news was posted. Seller wants $200 for it, yet it seems like a better to build, than buy item.,but that's me. Yes it tickles 'wanna try bone' and I've been slowly gathering 19th century tools. I've also grown fond of a chap named Roy Underhill who's quite the advocate for old world craftsmanship.,perhaps you've heard of him.?
Sounds like there's plenty todo 'round there along with keeping the Queen passive & comfy... All the best! pace thyself.

That's pretty cool for $200! It would take me years to make something like that!

Woke up this morning to get some gravel down on the barn dirtfloor before getting my machines in there. I have been working at fixing the barn up for 2 months now. Heres what I wake to...

That rocking tractor is awesome!
For some reason, woodwork never caught my fancy. Love the metal, though.
