I made this truck for my grandson with the intent that it become a family heirloom. I used Rockler’s free plan download. They offer a door from a post office box that allows it to become a piggy bank.

The body is cherry and accents are walnut. The wheels came from Rockler.

Looks like a family heirloom to me. Very nicely done and I’m sure your grandson will love and treasure your work.

Did you make the wheels with the spokes?
If not, where did you buy them? I need some just like these.
If you DID make these, super, super job.

Neighbor had this old Model T in his garage and I tried to do a model based on that car. Only problem I encountered was trying to find some material to use as tires! The electrical cord kept coming off.
