Model T Tanker Trucks from The Great All American Wooden Toy Book by Norm Marshall (project no. 3).

Maple, Alder, Poplar, Walnut. Again anything round is hand turned. These are #5, #7, and #9 in the production line.
The logos were found via Google Search, imported into InkScape, then converted to vectors, scaled, and laser printed out on copy paper, literally ironed onto the wood, woodburned w pyro pen, and sharpie colored.
That was kinda fun!

Oh, ya, I like these also… Like I said in your first post today, I have the books ordered. To make it easier for me on the logos, I will print them on decal paper and attach them, then coat them with the lacquer. These are just really cute toys that I know would sell well to adults….. I don’t sell, but they will make nice little gifts.
