    Yearly event----

    Once a year we stop and build 12 big toys, always making some parts on a lathe. This year it's jeeps ---- Donny thanks for the patern you sent us two years ago.
    The wheels and axles are turned on a lathe--- no stains just natural hard woods. I ain't even going to talk about the # of man hours that go into building the dozen.

    Great job Gary. Really a nice looking bunch and can't imagine the manhours.

    Nice work, Gary! I know you sell a variety of products from your shop, and I suspect these will be a good item for you.

    Thanks for all the kind words------- I have had several PM's about getting a copy of the pattern. C.J. Maginley sell's the pattern or you also can find it in Woodworker's Journal July/ August 1982. I did double the size to make it a large toy. Hope this helps. Oh next year we are thinking tractors------
