Another Christmas present.
I did make up a simple locking system that requires the new owner to dial in 2 numbers to open it up, the second door is held closed with a simple drop down bolt so when not used as a money box it can be played with. I also made the wheels with a home made jig to help drill the spoke holes. It measures 11 1/2” long 7 1/2” tall and 4” wide, made from tulip wood and sapele also some odd bits of unknown wood.

Excellent, I liked the dials on the back to get it open.

Something about this little truck I really like. Simple, yet really nice. Makes me want to try one. Super job and thanks for sharing!
