When I retired 7 years ago I started making wood toys. These have been given away to any child or parent who would wander into my shop. You can imagine my chagrin when my grown daughter saw one of my 24 crayon 2×4 trucks that I was making and asked me; “Can you make me a 64 crayon truck, please?”. How could I say, “No”? As we were building her tiny house she even created a garage for it in one of the lockers.

-- Some of my most creative moments have been when I've had to cover up an error in my woodworking.

Very neat project, and I can see why you could not say No. The third photo is the selling ticket, great job. And I may have to borrow this one.

Joe,I mentioned that I may have to borrow your design. Working on a drawing for it. What are the dimensions of the rig and trailer combined? I figured at least and area of 3” x 9” for the interior of the trailer. Thanks in advance.
