This is another “Toys and Joys” project and YES, the fenders were put on backwards. We all make mistakes. Anyway, I still think its a cute truck so I’ll just make another and ensure I get the fenders on the right way!!

Ron that is a really nice piece of craftmanship even with the fender challenge. And I want you to know that you made my day when I read your confession about the fenders; I thought I was the only woodworker in the nation that made mistakes that my wife sees immediately.

I’ll bet that 95% of the folks that see this article (or even the real toy) would NOT notice the fenders.
Looks great and I’d also bet that ANY KID would be happy as heck to own it!

very cool truck. I like the striping in the wood. I’m like the 95% that did not notice the fenders until you mentioned it. All I saw was a cool truck!

You did such a great job on this pickup that I could hardly believe you got the fenders on backwards, that is until I started remembering some of my own misadventures, many of which make this one look inconsequential.

Looks pretty good. I found some old plans in a Wood Mag and thought about building a stake bed truck early model. Great job.

I’m just in awe of the beautiful wooden ute….. What is the timber & the finish please, thank you….
