Informazioni sull'autore

Even as a farm boy, Sam Martin had an interest in making toys.  Although the early ones were crudely made and nailed together, Sam never lost the desire to build better toys.  It was in the early 1980s that he and his son invested in shop tools.  Sam built some furniture but soon devoted his time to making reproductions of trucks, cars, steam shovels and backhoes. To date Sam, a retired biochemist, has scaled down some 50 different vehicles and excavators.  In over a decade and a half he has crafted nearly 3,000 toys.  Sam and his wife Georgia live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Project Inspiration

This backhoe uses a series of springs to give an impressively realistic hydraulic system effect.

This pumper truck is impressive in either of Sam Martin’s favorite woods—oak or cherry

A hallmark of Sam’s toys is that every individual piece is made from wood, even down to the Mack emblem made of wooden veneer.
