In this video I build a gift for my Girlfriends nephew. Instead of making the typical box, or blanket chest. I give this two year old the worlds coolest Wooden Toy Truck!</h3>
With the holidays right around the corner, i felt this would be a good time to get ahead on some gifts. When talking to my Girlfriend, I wanted to make something timeless for her two year old nephew. Understandably, she wanted to do some timeless furniture piece. My mind quickly went to absurdity, and landed here. On a wooden toy truck. So i decided to make him my own version of a Monster Truck.

If you want to see how I built it, check out the full video HERE!

Good choice… it is hard to push a piece of furniture and is not as much fun to make vroomy noises while doing so.

You’ve done well John and the little bloke will be over the moon with the truck…
Hours of fun, play and imagination ahead driving that truck everywhere…
