The truck is made from 4 pices of 3/4” pine glued together. The two out side pices were cut for fenders. Wheels are from a left over of oak flooring. Painting was more work than making the truck. Two coats of sealer was placed over paint.

Thanks LJs. It was a fun project but the painting was the most work. The plans came from ,then click on more toys. I added my own touch with the different colors and details. I thnk the Police car is next and I will do that using the wood colors with a “kid safe finish”.

I neve thought about it before but it does remind me of a Studerbaker. Speaking of baker I got a loaf of bread ready to come out of the bread maker. Not woodworking but “Onion soup bread” sure is good!
