This is a toy built from plans by Toys and Joys out of Lynden, Washington. Made mostly of highly figured curly maple. The truck is setting on a curly koa coffee table I made 35 years ago while stationed in Hawaii

Wow….looks awesome! I’d say it’s about 32 inches long?? Very similar to the one one I made out of maple and walnut….but different design. That curly maple sure makes it pop! Got my plans from Wood magazine. Looks like yours have more detail in it than mine. I just started working on a T&J plan today…1949 truck.

G’Day Ron, I love this build, I’ve seem a few blokes who’ve done as good a job as yourself, well done.
For me, my skills aren’t quite up there yet.
Cheers, crowie
