Ev and Melissa got invited to one of their friends parties the other weekend, James. He's a lovely little boy and whenever he comes over here to play he's always slightly obsessed with the tractor we've got in the field. In fact I'm fairly sure he'd spend all his time in there and be quite happy!
So for his birthday I decided to make him a blackboard shaped like a tractor. I was a little bit worried as drawing is far from my strongest point and I had visions of him not being able to work out what it was! In the end he loved it, stopped playing with everyone else and pushed it around for a good ten minutes before his parents could hide it so he'd go back to playing with his friends!
It was really simple to make, just some WBP plywood cut to shape, then sanded to remove all the rough edges and painted with blackboard paint. I drilled the fixing holes in the middle of the wheels and one on the top of the cap (countersunk as well) and included some screws and rawl plugs for fixing.
As usual with this type of thing I had people telling me I should make them to sell. How much do you think they'd sell for? Do you think they'd sell?
