This truck is a typical wood toy that I make. I initially started the truck using blueprints from an outfit out of Lynden, Washington (Toys and Joys). When a concrete truck broke down in my driveway, I was able to take many digital pictures from all angles and I duplicated most of the truck from those pictures. Almost all of the wood used was Big Leaf Maple from the Pacific Northwest. All the wood is figured, either curly or quilted.
