“Grandpa, Drake needs a pizza truck and 10 pizzas.” How big? “About this long and this high and it needs a door on the back that opens and closes and …” Hold on, have him draw me a plan while I’m building the garbage truck.

Just scrap lumber whipped up quick as the boys were just here over the weekend.

Edit: About half of this is recycled pallet wood.

At least they were happy with the results. I guess I followed them close enough even though I fattened up the cab and relocated the front wheels ;-))

Hi Bob, this is the best looking pizza truck too.
These are the wonderful memories your grandchildren will share with their children one day.
Robby and Drake are blessed to have such a generous Grandpa.

Thanks for sharing your happy times with the grandchildren Bob

Terrific! Does he deliver? Maybe when he is old enough to cross the street. ;)
You have a couple of fun buddies there, Bob. Lucky you, lucky boys.

Bob A little artistic licence on the drawing… your construction seems to be rather sturdy.,..

Gee Bob, going for the Grandpa of the Year award? You have my vote! Two stellar trucks for the grandsons.

I think your construction was a tad off – your trucks seem too square compared to the drawings. ;-)

GREAT Job – a true masterpiece x 2 !!!!

looks to me like you have some very happy clients. Better than going to the store to buy a toy. They will cherish these for a long time. Way to go Grandpa.
