|Ever seen a completely handcrafted, wooden tractor before? Check this out!!|
|One of the neatest things we have seen lately related to the old tractor collecting hobby!|
became acquainted with Tom via the good ol' internet. He had visited
our Oliver Tractor Stuff Page and we began conversations
shortly after that. He sent me some pictures of his wooden model
of a 1958 Oliver 770 Diesel that he had recently completed. I couldn't
resist sharing these with you (with his permission of course).
Tom has been doing wood work for a very long time. He has done mostly furniture and display work in the past and in almost every case (furniture or models) he designs the projects as well as building them. Tom has been doing models for about 20 years but has been making them available for sale now for only 5 or 6 years. He uses mostly walnut and cherry materials to build them but he has used a wide variety of other hardwoods in the past.
Although Tom has a long history in wooden model making (with items such as construction equipment excavators, untility vehicles, golf carts, semi tractor rigs, etc.), this Oliver was his first attempt at farm equipment. He emphasized that he wants to do a series of old tractors and farm equipment and he has a page on his site just for that purpose. Any ideas? Let me know and I will put you in contact with him. Or better yet, visit him at his website, Woodman Collectibles and let him know what you might like to see modeled from wood.
I must say that I was so impressed with Tom's work that I decided to show it to all the woodworkers at my other website called "Ol' Daves Woodshop". His work not only relates to us here at Fastrac but would appeal to woodworkers as well!
For those of you who might be interested, there was an article in "Our Canada", a Readers Digest Magazine, about Tom and his work. You can read that article here!
At any rate, here's a couple more pictures
of this very well made and detailed Oliver! Enjoy!
is continually developing and building new models of vehicles from wood.
Shortly after I posted this original story on his 1958
Oliver 770 Diesel tractor model, he sent me two photos of a new tractor
model. The tractor is a 1938 Allis Chalmers Model B. Does this
guy have talent or what? Check out these two new pictures of his
newest model below.
