Well I have started on making Christmas presents this is the 1st one to be done for one of the great grand children. Taken a 6 days from rough stock to completion and it measures 13” long by 5” across and stands 6 3/4” tall this was from a free set of plans I found but I have changed and added bits to it.

All of the wood came from what I had laying around. So onto the next present soon

Looks great. I started some X-mas stuff three weeks ago, probably will still not be ready in time.

Beautiful truck. Those different types of woods used are real match.

I’ve made a few of these with this plan. I love your take on it. I’m going to borrow some of your style on the next ones. I’m curious as to how you glued them up. The first two I made with titebond and the third with CA. A lot easier with the CA and they seem to hold up just as well. Again, great looking truck.

You build nice stuff working alone. Just think how productive you could be with a couple hundred elves!

I use PVA glue on all of my toys I make and also avoid using any screws or nails not that I expect anything to break but better to be safe than sorry
