Here are some photos of the project

Hey All,

Very nice! And a pretty place as well.

But let me get to the important thing... What kind of tractor? What kind of guitar? Looks like 000 size 12 fret? Spruce over rosewood? Tractors and guitars are two of my favorite things. :wiggle:

here is a vid...

That was amazing LOL, The guitar is an old Kimbara among several others i have. The tractor is a Volvo BM 400 from 1969:

Hey All,

Nice pics! I was wondering if that tractor was volvo or valmet - looked to be of that 50s 60s era and the red looked right. I've always liked Valmet even though not very common in North America.

Nice video - the (Bolinder?) diesel sounds great.

Nice old Les Paul - I have a Martin GPCPA4 sitka over rosewood, a Sigma 000 and a Gretsch Projet. Looking to add a Tele this year. I'm working on relearning what I used to know - which wasn't a lot to start with. Just keeping mind and fingers working.

As for gardens my wife is the gardener - I just rototill and eat the results! :mixed-smiley-010:

I don't play the guitar and I know nothing about tractors but I will gladly sit down in one of those chairs and enjoy the music of either of the above while looking at that wounderful view you have as the sun sets and that stary night appears.

Nice job on your garden and loved yor vid as well Ed

Nice looking patch!

When I saw the views - my immediate thought was - Hmm...hill..trees...upslope...bushfires..., but, I guess you don't suffer much from those in Norway.

What's the rock...granite?

Looks like a useful tractor - we've got a 1939 Allis Chalmers my wife rebuilt - lovely little thing but a bit limited in useability.
