Henry Ford might of had a faster assembly line, but he had more employees. None the less, I managed to get the trucks built. I opted to go with a clear coat finish and let the wood speak for itself.

I still managed to get that worn look just from the wood.

Each truck has a personalized message on the sides, which is a made up company and slogan.

I hope my coworkers like their French Goat Toy Christmas.

Thanks for visiting my project.

Thanks to Pete for the sound advice on the finish.

Net job FG...

With the similarity, bet your coworkers will fight over the barrels.
