Another Toys & Joys plan with a few modifications.
The wood used are Maple, Black Walnut, and the side panels are a piece of wood that I have had for a long time. I don’t know what it is. It was a block 10” long X 1.5” thick and 4” wide, given to me. I suspect that it might be one of the Elm family.
The approximate size is: 15” long X 6” wide X 6.5” tall.

Very nice job! Let me know when you start building full size ones. This would have to be the ultimate delivery vehicle for a furniture maker. Thanks for the post.

Nice woody Mr. Woody. Very cool indeed. Looks like it might be a little tough to build. Man it sure is purdy though.

You did a great job MrWoody. Even if it wasn’t a fun build for you. That certainly took a lot of planning, patience, and talent.

Thanks for posting it.

very nice job. you have taken this T&J project to a higer level. I love the thin detail lines of contrasting wood. this really makes this project. how thick are they and do they run thru the pieces allowing them to be built up prior to shaping.

Thank you for all your kind praise.
Tenontim: No plans for a fulled sized one at this time, but you never know. ;^)
Alistair: It is a Toys and Joys plan. The detail though planned became tiresome in the end.
Chebaguewoodbutcher: The hood pieces are 1/2” thick (maple) and the walnut were 1/16” X 3/4”. They were glued then shaped.

Was in Ocean City Md this past weekend and the “Cruisers” were in town. Actually got to see one of these driving down the street!

Nice Job

Well, you done it again Mr Woody. That is one nice little woody wagon.

I really like the segmented hood build up and the piece you added between the hood and cab…makes it look so much more realistic. Not to mention the segmented seats…... Nice touch.

And such a great choice of wood, colour contrast is outstanding…

I guess I’ll have to build another one of these.. A “Tip of the Hat to you sir”
