My grandson love his cars and trucks. I found a book when I was in Omaha that contained not only this truck but several others. I used some black walnut that I picked up while I was in TN, the stacks are made from .25in copper pipe and .25in dowls using .125in dowls holding them on. I used the same .125in dowls for the head lights. My wife came up with the idea of putting the kids pictures on the front, I used spray glue then used a very very very light coat of shellac for the first coat. After a few coats I used clear nail polish to seal around the edges of the pictures to help keep little fingers from pulling them off. The wheels are cut from a block of color wood I picked up when I was in Iowa.
