This is the sixth toy truck post office door bank I have made for my six grandsons. My seven granddaughters received a variety of post office door banks such as U.S. Postal outdoor mail receptacles [replicas, of course]. The truck was made from American cherry, Brazilian cherry, Northern white pine, red oak, black walnut and Southern yellow pine. The top can be removed as well as the engine compartment and windscreen. Each axle and wheel can be removed in case a wheel is damaged and needs to be replaced. All of the metal parts of the truck are solid brass except whatever metal was used for the post office box door. The door was purchased on eBay and then restored by a couple in Georgia. The headlights, steering wheel and wheels were purchased from WoodWorks, Ltd aka www.craftparts.com. The truck is equipped with a plastic windshield, gear shift and pedals for braking, shifting and acceleration. It took about 12 hours to complete which was a lot less than the first one I made.
