Default Big boys big toys

Has anyone seen the latest edition of "Wood" magazine? Page 66 a retired contractor decided to reproduce some of his profession in 1/2 scale, 6" to the foot. He has reproduced a Pete built tractor with a gravel hauler trailer, a frontend loader, D8 Cat, back hoe and low boy trailer. All was made primarily from wood, with fiberglass, plastic, powder coat and a few other items thrown in. Some of the items actually operate with remote control.

Wisdom: Where experience and knowledge combine and become one.

"We are all one decision away from Stupid!!"

Lamentations 3:22-23

"How often we sacrifice the permanent plans of God on the altar of immediate solutions"

I have a very good memory, just short is all.
