This is a project my Grandson completed using scrap wood, while his dad and I built a new work counter in his shop. It’s his version of a log truck, that is commonly found on the road in this area. He does not have a lot of woodworking experience but he’s getting there. This was a project he worked out from his head without any plans. The only drawings were some he did on a board (in the background of Picture #3). Kudos on a job well done, Donnie!

Awesome truck he made. I would never tell he hasn’t got experience. He is very skilled woodworker.

Very nice. There is a guy in my gallery that makes things very similar. He sells a ton of them.
You’ve done a great job Donnie!
