Not a Ford, but it could be, Just a little truck ready for fun, play and imagination!

Well it was a wet summer downunder and Autumn [Fall] has been equally as damp.
My under the house shed which is cut into the sandstone rock has been consistently damp to wet as the water hydraulics through the rock.
I’ve had 4 fans running 24/7 since December in an attempt to keep the timber and shed work area dry.

Still saying that the TOYMAKING MUST GO ON!

This is another batch of 4 little trucks or maybe Utes for the local shop.

The timber in the body is recycled doors for a 1960’s commercial cupboard laminated with another misc timber.

The tray timber base is TallowWood with the side also for the cupboard.

The truck is nearly 7” [175mm] long by 4” [100mm] wide and 4” [100mm] high.

Headlights and tail lights are furniture buttons.

The wheels are 1.75” dia shop bought.

I used my homemade wipe-on-poly as the finish 4 coats.

Both Papa Smurf and Handy Smurf were very pleased with the finished vehicles.

Looks like the kids in your neck of woods are pretty lucky for all the little cars you build. Great Job!

G’day Jim,
HOW MANY WOODEN VEHICLES HAVE I MADE?
Sir, honestly I have no idea.
I’ve been making toys since 2009 with about 90% given away, gifted or donated; my guess is something well over a 1000.
Saying that, the real joy is that a child receives a strong playable toy that will last.
I like Doug, aka Hunter71, handle referring to PAID IN FULL WITH THE SMILE OF A CHILD!
I pretty sure I’ll keep making toys as long as I’m able and encouraging others to also, cheers.
