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.

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.
