Christmas is 147 days away. That may sound like a long time, but handmade gifts can take a lot of time and effort. So, if you’re getting crafty this holiday season, you should probably get started!

In case you didn’t know, Instructables is a website dedicated to giving users the ability to read and post step-by-step guides for everything from car repair to card counting.

The how-to

Phil’s how-to shows how to build a pint-sized wooden tractor and hay baler. He originally built the tractor for his son. Thankfully, Phil decided to share his process with everyone.
