This is a wooden truck for my 2 year old son. Built from scraps of plywood and Poplar. I had intended to make it from Oak that I ordered with the plywood being a prototype, but it turned out better than I thought it would. The truck has a Trailer / Crane and I want to keep it modular with the option of adding a Dumper and other trailers.

Thank you so much guys :) I set up a profile here a long time ago and never got around to adding anything until now. What a fantastic place Lumberjocks is :)

It’s sometimes hard to decide on future projects, but looking through your profiles has given me a lot of inspiration for my already huge list of things to make :D

Jim, your projects are great.

Tony, I love the trucks on your profile, maybe my skills will develop as my boy grows and I will make some nearer to your standard.

Ivan, I looked through your profile and your daughters painting with the floating frame is amazing. It symbolizes Yoga perfectly :)

Merry Christmas to all and your families.

Namaste
