Machines made form wood. A toy story, part 5

Perhaps the most interested toys that Itsik builds, are the cars, motorcycles, and trucks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Few of them have a moving mechanism, such as a pivoting crane arm. And one particular tow truck has even a ratcheted mechanism that allow you to lock the hook in position and keep the load in mid air!

 

 

 

Than there is the "real" scooter he built for his nephew Ron…..

 

 

At the end of the day Itsik offered me a great organic mango that he picked for the tree out side the shop.  He made a series of cross cuts, and then push the mango's flesh upward…. it was delicious…….
