This was a fun little project that I made for my nephew. He loves trucks, bikes and machinery, so rather than going with the traditional horse for a rocker, it made sense to go with something a little more badass! Needless to say, he loved it!

I like this because there are not a lot of these out there. How about a few details. Time, material, use of a plan?

It took about 8 hours total to do. I didn’t use a plan, but I went off of a picture of one that I’d seen on the internet. I used baltic birch plywood for the main body of the bike and the base. All of the accents are either black walnut or peruvian walnut, made from scraps I had laying around the shop.
I think that about covers it.
