I started this truck at the end of last year and desided to finish it today. There are two seats inside the truck with the steering wheel as best as I could cut it. The truck is mainly made of Walnut but I did use Maple and Oak to build the truck the trailer is walnut. The trailer does come off the truck. Just another fun project.
Thanks Dennis

Love the use of the knots in the trailer. A great way to use what might have been a cast-off to the firewood pile.

Mike if you burn wood like this please send it to me because those are not knots that will ever move. Its in the wood.
