Little Trucks for under the Christmas Tree…

They’ll be filled with a small load of lollies [candies] for the grandsons [approx 4” x 4” x 1”].

I laminated a piece of Red Gum between 2 pieces of Spotted Gum to create the body.

Four of the trays are Tassie Oak with Blackheart Sassafras sides with one American Walnut.

The wheels are shop bought.

The finish is home made WOP, [30% Tung Oil, 40% Clear Satin Polyurethane + 30% Turps].

Fun project and I’m sure the grandson will also enjoy them along with the Christmas lollies.

Wonderful stuff you have been making lately. Busy is not the word for it! Another great group of trucks!

Thank you ladies and gents for the kind encouragement…

Should have mentioned that 4 of the trucks are pretty well identical for the four grandsons, clever pa;
the fifth with the walnut tray is for a Christmas give away gift…

Great cutesey for the AB (Ancle Bitters)!
