While 2020 wasn’t much of a year for many of us, 100 years earlier in 1920’s it was for Ford especially their C Cab trucks.

Towards the end of last year I was asked by a local shop to supply them with some hand made wooden toys.

Now I seem to have specialized on trucks so made one for the shop which the owner purchased from me on the spot asking if I could make a couple for the shop to sell.

I made two and these were posted in a previous post but then the fun began.

The encouragement and support from folk on Lumberjocks is just so good, Jan, aka Dutchy emailed me suggesting I needed to draw up some plans for my designed “C Cab Truck”.

At first I dismissed the suggestion but then rethought it and started another truck taking measurement and photos along the way. I then sent a “THANK YOU” note to Jan.

Now the real story starts, as Jan kindly offered to draw up a set of plans for me using my photos and dimensions.

He blow me away with a 3D drawing first, then over the past few months between he and myself, Jan refined the plans and WOW they are excellent.

That’s not the end of the story folks, Jan then offered to add my “C Cab Truck” plans to his website as a free downloadable playable toy…

Please have a look at the link, download the plan and put a smile on a child’s face.

Thank you to my woodworking friend in The Netherlands, Jan.

And if you need any assistance please drop me a note, I’d be more than happen to help.

-- Lifes good, Enjoy each new day...... Cheers from "On Top DownUnder" Crowie

Yo Pete and family

I can actually use a mouse today so improving out of sight..

I am not sure if you saw Dutchy’s motorbike I managed to snap at Nabiac Museum on route home from Syd I had 14 Days to burn up before being able to cross the border so I stopped at the museum for a while.

I am not 100 % certain its actually his but it sure looks like it!

Not too shabby crowie... and it’s in English to boot.

Talking about boots...

OMG is there no escape from my stupidity !!

I am doing everything left handed at the moment hopefully if symptoms improve it will spare me from having to visit a doctor Monday or perish the thought a hospital!... people die in them you know!

And no BTW I didn’t trip over a nail!... thanks for being so nice and noticing!

I tried to trim them on the table saw once but I soon learned I was not that skilled!

But that’s yet another bloody story

I thought the cost of tools was bad but went to buy some beer via friend today and its $57 a slab whats the world coming too the workers are getting screwed over yet again.

You are more than welcome Peter. It is great to be a member of this LJ forum and that does not only apply to you. A lot of LJ members have helped me to improve my plans. He is not the only one but Alex, for example, has been assisting me for years with making SU drawings. Now I am still looking for someone to correct my language errors here on LJ.

Feel better, Rob!
