This group of wooden toys were built from the late 70s to the early 80s… this truck was built by myself in 1984 and the entire group was unfinished until around 2007 as I worked on various other projects.
At that time I decided to add some color to my wooded toys and this is the end result of paint & decals. I added decals to the barrels, kegs and mild cans that sit in the rear of the truck. I will post pictures of a couple other items from this group to give you an idea of the possibilities when adding paint and decals to wooden items.
I made a decision when I started building these toys to only used 3/4” – #2 Pine…. therefore all of my wooden toys from that time period are made totally from #2 Pine.
