A late Christmas present for my favorite nephew Brody.
I have to give thanks to my buddy CROWIE who was kind enough to let me copy his Norm Marshall straight truck.
I made a few modifications, depending on what I had laying around. Now that I have a lathe, it was a breeze to turn the smoke stacks, wheels, lights and air horns.
I wanted to make all the contrasting pieces out of different woods and the only thing I had to stain was the pine hood and cab. The only item not glued or screwed is the tailgate which slips into a slot. Many, many coats of poly to hopefully stand up to little boy abuse.
Ballpark size – 3” – 4” W x 6” H x 16” L.
He said “big ole truck” – priceless. Thanks for looking guys. Ray
