We got a call yesterday that some friends were coming up and bringing their 5 year old grandson with them. He calls me “THE MAKER” I realized it was near him birthday and I hadn’t made him anything in some time,so I decided to build the garage for him, an easy build. My wife said he may not have a truck to fit the garage, sooo, I made a real quick truck. Everything is drying on the wood stove. Wheew, a marathon truck build.
Pine and cedar, store bought wheels.
