This is a “crayon” truck I made for my nephew for Christmas. He is two and a half, so I used the “fat” crayons for his truck. I made it out of soft Maple, and painted it with child friendly paint!!

Looks awesome, well done. I would have loved something like that as a kid.
I might copy your idea some time if you don’t mind.

Very nice. My dad built me a train from leftover boards, wooden thimbles for the smokestack and wooden checkers for wheels. I’m 45 now and still treasure it and have it displayed with other toys and mementos from my childhood. I’m sure that your nephew will love it.

Since I’m not a wood turner YET!!!! I purchase wheels for trucks & trains from Lee Valley in Canada.

Thanks for all the kind woods, and I have a big smile on my face for it being in the Daily Top Three!!!! First time!!!!!! :-)

G’Day Snookie, Top Job…..
You can also make wheels with holesaws & forstner bits….shop around for the store bought wheels as the prices vary widely..Keep up the good work.
Cheers, crowie
