Woodworking Hobbyist Carves Models of Farm Machinery

Minneapolis Moline model

I operated a dairy farm here in the Finger Lakes region of New York for 35 years. After selling in 1979, I had more time for my lifetime hobby of woodworking. I now have more than 300 models of farm machinery, trucks and trains. When I received the November 2013 issue of Farm Collector with a Minneapolis-Moline tractor on the front cover, I saw that I didn’t have one of that model in my collection. This photo shows what I ended up with. It took about 14 hours to complete. Wayne Gunsolus must have had a great time rebuilding that machine; he sure did a great job.
