Well, They are not exactly belated as we are just getting together for Christmas with my brother-in-law’s family tomorrow. My daughter once again wanted to make a truck for her little cousin, this year choosing a tow truck. I still had some chassis from the the other trucks we have made so we went to work and came up with the one you see here. She of course did most of the painting, I did the wheels with Sharpie markers and the wheel stuck in my drill with a machine screw. She is pretty happy with the outcome.

My brother-in-law will be receiving the pen with tilt, the pen is Cherry and the tilt Curly Maple. I again used an iron to transfer the words. Came out much better this time as I did the sanding first :). The ornament is made from Honeysuckle.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Guys,
She is getting better at giving the toys a more consistent paint job. I am looking forward to working with her more on projects over this year.
