I seen a picture of a toy piggy bank on a site & decided to build one for my grandson for christmas, I didn’t build it exactly as the one I saw but just the general idea. I made everything by hand except the wheels, headlights, stearing wheel and metal latch. I had to resaw 1×6 down to diferent thickness’s, the front fenders gave me a test because of so many different angles & notch’s. I finished it with a pecan stain & a semi-gloss verathane, it took me quite a while to build it as I have some disabilities. I am not sure of what exactly what I am suppose to put down in the tags/keywords section, hopefully I used the right words.
