His latest project, a 28-wheeler model truck made from six different types of wood, is an eye-catcher and cleverly crafted.
The former shepherd spent the recent lockdown working on the project in his home workshop.
The model is based on a Wilson Bulk Transport truck and a bulk bin will be fitted.
Working with good wood was a pleasure and the process didn’t need to be hurried, he said.
Smith enjoyed giving away some of the things he made. His next project is a model road train, which will be a bigger and more complex challenge.
Smith, who has been woodworking since he retired 15 years ago, also dabbles with paints.
He uses acrylics mostly, and some of his canvases have included large saw blades.
The ideas for his projects are often inspired by talking to his mates at the Ashburton Menz Shed, where he has been a member for the last seven years.
"I’ve learnt a lot from them over the years and, if I don’t know something, I’ll ask. Someone always has the know how and they’re all good men,” he said.
