Another Toys and Joys project I built this one as a gift for my son in law, who works for a large Public Utilities Company.
I thought he might get a kick out of it ? Was a fun project
Does not have the Dutchy wheels but maybe someday?
Any or all thoughts welcomed.

I do like it very much! Sure looks real too.

I especially like the contrasting woods.

Very nice Dee. Good wood combination and I also like the door grooves. You can be proud and I’m sure your son in law will love it.

This is another nice model. This one is very realistic and so beautifully done.

Excellent build Dee
Very clean and nice detail.
Did you tell your son in law that he has to wash and wax it every week?
Wouldn’t hurt to check the tire pressure as well, lol

Beautiful job D. Love to see contrasting timber and you have nailed the mix. The kerfs are nice and crisp and certainly add to the feature.
Are the knobs “hole punched”? They look great.
