My first try at this type of project. I really enjoyed crafting the truck. It was kind of like sculpting. I found pics on a website then copied and pasted them into microsoft paint. Iincreased the size of them until the wheels in the photo were the size of the wheels I had purchased. I printed out the pics and used transfer paper to make the wooden pieces. A little glue and some acrylic paint… that is about it.

Nice. Maybe too many digits in the phone number for a true antique, though.

That is really nice. The detail is wonderful.

You made only 1? I assume that the truck is your toy then. You should have made 3- one for each of the children. But this does give you an excuse to get back into the shop and make some more.

Thanks for sharing.

Great details. I love the “antique” in the back.

Great detail. A friend of mine used to pull trees out with one of these, brings back memories.
