Default Fire Truck

This was made by one of my visually impaired turners. Bob has made a number of these trucks, but this is his last one. His vision has deteriorated so much he can no longer see to do the fine detail work.

Sharon, it's a beautiful little executive office or collector's piece, it's far to nice to be used as a toy. The gentleman does beautiful work, I feel so sorry for him concerning his loss of vision. I can only imagine the quality of work he could do, if he could see.

Now from someone who has OK vision but has to use cheaters and from someone who appreciates small detailed things like this, I have to give this person an A++++++ he did better than I could have and all my abilities. That is a nice piece of work and they should be very proud of it. All the accolades he is getting and will get are well deserved and spot on. Well done.

Did you notice that the fire extinguisher on the back is made from a red golf tee?
