A small Barn

Postby Kodiak » Wed Dec 21, 2005 10:06 am

I made this replica of my father-in-law's barn for his Christmas present. He's not much on "red" tractors but my Cub is the one that keeps the 7 acres of grass cut all summer!!

Image

His old 8N has seen a lot's of action over the years so I can understand while he's a bit partial to it.
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Great detail Ron! Anyone would be please to receive a gift like that!

The best gifts I have ever received were gifts that someone took the time to make themselves :!: I still have a letter holder made from pop sickle sticks 20 years ago :lol:

Nice job Ron :!: :!: :!:

I'm sure your father in law will love it :!:
