When I saw Karson’s Airplanes and how he gave them as gifts it reminded me of the trucks I made a long time ago to give as gifts also.

These are Karson’s planes

Badger ,
It only took a weekend and a day. Once I got everything set up I put my wife on the drill press. I cut all the parts and sanded them. We both joined in on put them all together after we painted the parts. We cheated and bought the wheel’s! We also used child safe paint. The little kids loved them!

I have been thinking about doing some little cars for the anonymous Christmas Tree at church. I might switch to trucks. Very cute!

I love how those trucks seem to play once your back is turned. Good thing you had a camera set up with a trip wire to catch them in action.

Thanks for checking out the wine cabinet this evening at
