Three of a Kind

Tackle this trio of tiny trucks and start your own fleet of gifts for those on your list with a love for  wheels. You’ll discover how getting small can reap big rewards.

What is it about little boys and trucks? My grandson has been fascinated with wheels since his eyes first started to focus; and at age two, his preoccupation with all things wheeled is uncanny. Whatever it is, it works on me, too. It got me started back into woodworking after being away from it for over 20 years. 

I spotted some small wooden toy trucks in a large retail store (which shall remain nameless except to say that the first letter of their name has a lot of angles in it). I was intrigued for two reasons: They were very small but still wooden, and they were fairly well designed (though not that well constructed). So I immediately purposed to be a hero to my grandson and a help to our magazine by producing my own versions of these tiny trucks, and writing an article about the process. 

Here’s hoping it worked.
