The wooden trucks were such a hit a Christmas I got request for more as birthday gifts. There is even a pink one for a little girl that likes to play in the dirt. They are fun and simple to build and rugged enough to stand up to a lot of play. One detail you can not see here, each child’s name is painted across the rear of their particular truck.

I can’t let my wife see these. She is always after me to make them for the grand-nephews.

Roz,

Looked at “old biscut”, and these trucks. A looooong time ago I had an idea for a rocking horse. More like a carousel rocking pony. Then life happened. The kid grew up.LOL! Haven’t looked into rocking horses recently, but biscuit makes me pause and remember.

Really well executed and professional work! Hope you signed him! :-)
