1930’s Truck.. three variations of which this is one. Made primarily of Pine with Meranti highlights.
My limited skill and tools made this a challenging build, but the end result is pleasing.

The truck is well made and still a very good replica; while also remaining usable to play with too.

Toy making is a joy of it’s own.

Look over the “designs” and then look for how they really should be and make them THAT WAY!

This is exactly my personal mission statement. I didn’t want to go into too much detail. It adds hours of man hours that ultimately cost the client additional funds.. and more importantly I don’t want my work to sit on a shelf.. I want them to be played with. Retro is back in, I intend on taking full advantage of that in the work that I do. Thank you for your kind words they mean a great deal.

Thank you very much for your kind words.. I love toy trucks.. always have done and kids do like them. My neighbour has an 8 year old who loves my toys. Not only that but he loves learning how they get made.. a lumberjock in the making? Thanks again
