A little recreational woodworking. We’re having a one year old spend the weekend with us. I made wooden toys for his father (my nephew) when he was a kid, so I thought I’d revive the tradition. Primarily made of 1/2” alder, with a mahogany cab, padouk wheels and a dozen 2” birch blocks. The truck is finished with Deft Semi-Gloss lacquer. The blocks with General Finishes Wood Bowl Finish.

Hope you put your name and date on the bottom, that is going to be played with by several generations. Very well done.
