1920’s Ford “C” Cab Farm Truck for a little boy’s first birthday.

After seeing the Ford “C” Cab Farm Truck I made for the local boys & girls club Easter Guessing competition our youngest daughter asked if I could make a similar but smaller version for Asher’s cousin Sammy’s first birthday.

I had the pattern for the “C” Cab so it wasn’t too difficult to scale down the farm truck to a smaller tray back truck with not too much extra detail to ensure it’s playable for a little bloke.

The timber is a mixture of Merbau, Spotted Gum, Blackheart Sassafras with Beech Wheels while the finish is my home made Wipe On Poly.

That is really awesome mate, the little fella will love it to bits. Not literally.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
