As some of you know I just compleated a large pen order for a lumber company. Well I do other work besides pens and wanted to do something special for the owner of the company for giving me the chance to make the pens for them. It was a challenge making this but it was a lot of fun. The only thing let to do is make a display base for it and cut some”logs” for it to carry.

This is a very cool truck Bobby. I love the way you used the wood grain. You can be very proud of this project.

You did an outstanding job on this miniature log truck. We have these full sized trucks going past our house every day since the mill is about two miles down the road from us.

Thanks for all the comments, they are greatly appreciated. While this was a challenge to make it is what I really enjoy doing the most. My wife says I have way too much time on my hands and that I spend too much time nit picking, but if it does’nt meet my standards it gets redone. The wood used to make this is from the companys state champion Loblolly Pine tree that they had to cut down because it had died. The tree was dated back to 1779.
While pine is quite plain as far as grain, when I came across the flame grain in one piece, I knew I had to do something special with it, hence the hood design.
I am still working on getting the logo on the cab somehow and the possibillity of a clear cover for the base.

Again, thanks for all of the comments.
