This is for my Grandson Kaden, who is 2 1/2 years old. It is made from scrap lumber I had around the shop, walnut, dark oak, light oak, floor covering, purple heart and pine.

It took me about 3 weeks of evening and a couple of week-ends. Time was spent between glue up by turning some bowls.

Plans came out of Wood. mag.

Looks like a great truck. Did you turn the wheels?

No Bob, with not much time to build the truck I got the kit as directed in Wood. Next time I will give a try at making my own . I think it would be easy to do.

Merry Christmas
