Using a design from WWMM, I made a toy truck for my nephews little 3 yo for Christmas. He loved it since it had his name on it. Made from 2×4 construction lumber. It was a fun, simple project that I managed to screw up :) I made couple of mistakes but all is well. My wife used her cricket machine to cutout the letters, then we attached and sprayed lacquer over them.

It was fun watching him drive it all around the living room floor, then put the tv remote in the trailer & haul that around.

Simple toys like this help to let the child’s imagination do the work.
Very nice!

That is a good, tough, toy truck. Nice work! The kids will play with it a while without breaking it.
