This is a Toys and Joys school bus build. I used white hard maple for this. The seats, front directional lights and license plate frames are black walnut. I purchased the birch wheels and the buttons that are used for the taillights and the beacon lights on the front. This bus is being given to the gentleman who owned the local bus company and recently sold his fleet and retired.

This is a very good looking bus. I like the wood choise, modest but that’s why beautiful. That fellow who got him must have been happy. Well done, a nice piece.
