Found this in The Great Book of Wooden Toys, it’s a Norm Marshall design. I tweaked the design just a bit opting for the spoke wheels instead of the solid ones. Just felt it needed that little extra touch. I realize it’s now for an older child, but that’s okay. The tank is a piece from an old rolling pin.

Thanks for looking.

super looking model T. One of the cutest toys I’ve seen posted. The spoked wheels were certainly the right choice.

Nice job. I’ve made the same truck with the solid wheels and I like yours better. Older kids need toys too.

Great attention to details. This is a work of a real talented wood worker. Cool.
