Color Pencils Wooden Toy Truck

A very simple and quick to make toy truck made from 2X2 pine and pallet wood to decorate my grandson’s desk.
Made a removable platform with holes to hold the pencils, and also the truck wheels.

Nice idea and a cool truck. How come we never had such cool pencil holders when we were young?

thanks Dave… well my grandfather liked carpentry and he was into it, but with just hand tools he was building all tables needed for the family business, but never I remember him building anything decorative… just only what was needed. Now our kids are the lucky ones and even my daughter she is onto woodworking but with light wood and christening and wedding decors.

Stelios, these are very nice toys and it looks like you have made a certain amount of standardization with the different ‘beds’. Nice work! Am I right?
