    So think your a Wood worker?

    I just watched this video, it's long 20 minutes. In fact I've watched it twice. I think I'm just gonna sell the tools and find a new hobby.

    Short story, this guy Fred Heim builds 1/2 scale wooden models. Now your probably thinking so, well it's not only the scale, but what he builds models of. How a Peterbuilt 379, pulling a Rogers tri axle equipment trailer. Of course you need a load, how about a Cat D8H, or a 385 excavator, or maybe a wheel loader? Of course with all that dirt moving equipment you gotta have a dump trailer.

    The Pete has a little diesel engine. Fred says he can squeeze in it, the wheel loader is remote control.

    That's simply incredible! Wouldn't wanna do it, but admire his drive and ability.

    Holy Moly...that's bloody amazing. Didn't see a CB radio in that 18-wheeler though. What can I say...some guys make pens, some guys make Peterbilts.

    That's amazing work. I'll bet nobody accuses him of being idle in his retirement.

    Check out this full scale wooden bike. I'm not sure which is cooler, the wooden chain or the ratcheting system,
