This is my 51 Ford Pickup that I built a couple of years ago. It is built mainly with Kauri. I hadn’t learnt about ebonizing at the time so the tires are just natural wood.It is another Toys & Joys plan.

Built a few years ago? To think, it hasn’t aged a bit. Really nice detail and kept squeaky clean by those great wipers.

Peter, I love ford trucks from the 50’s. This is a very nice miniature and done so nicely.

I wish I could make wooden toys like that for my Grandson. Since I can not afford much maybe I can learn how to make them.

Great looking model. All of the models you’ve made are first rate, but my favorite for sentimental reasons is the 48 Ford woody.

Great job. I love that. One on my list to try, but, at the rate I do it it may never get done. I just started the T&J ‘34 Chev Coupe a couple days ago. I’ve had the plans for over 2 years.

Peter, I’m working on this model, was wondering how you made the kerf around the window openings.
