DON BULDHAUPT - SKILLED WOODWORKER BUILDS REPLICA FARM EQUIPMENT

Just over twenty years ago, Donald Buldhaupt moved from his farm into town. The life-long Lake Wilson resident spent a lifetime farming, including welding projects with his brother, but now Don needed something to do with his time. “I decided to work in my garage building things out of wood,” he said. And for twenty years, that’s exactly what he did! Two years ago Don moved to Pipestone and brought with him about thirtyfive of the over fifty replica tractors, farm equipment and construction vehicles he designed and built entirely out of wood. Don remarked, “Sometimes I use a little wire, maybe a nail or a small jewelry chain, but otherwise they are all wood.” This includes wheels, tracks and moving parts! “I often had to design my own tools to use. It was a learning process.”

Stamp champ!

Marshall man is a lifetime collector with a collection on its way to one million stamps. Two large trophies sitting on a table in Steve Klein’s office in Marshall were giving off a radiant glow from the sun’s rays penetrating through a nearby window. Klein didn’t earn these trophies or any of his many blue ribbons for showing animals or for baking pies at the state fair. They were the product of his philatelic prowess. One of the trophies he was awarded in 2017 was for an impressive and informative collection of Abraham Lincoln stamps.
