Yes, I know that the 50th anniversary is customarily GOLD, but I am a simple woodworker so they get a simple truck.
We have friends that are celebrating their 50th anniversary soon. They have been in the construction business all these years so I thought it proper to build them a truck for the occasion. Totally from my own design, a one of a kind for some hard working friends. Mostly cherry wood, store bought wheels.
I did put GOLD lettering on it though!

Very nice, building from your own design is more rewarding than building some one else’s design, although I still love building Toys and Joys, haha. Great job on the truck!

Great looking truck. It has a golden tone to the wood, so perfectly appropriate. It reminds me a little of the 1931 Model A Ford 4 door sedan we went to town in every Saturday night when I was about 5 years old.

Hunter, that is one fine miniature. I’m more than sure that they were happy with that gift.

The one thing I thought would draw attention was the background.
