Handmade Wooden Toy Truck - Play Pal - Pickup Truck

This was one of the first Play Pals I have made and the second one that I sold. the toy trucks body is made from poplar from a pallet. The wheels and dowels I purchased from Woodworks LTD . The finish is hand brushed satin polyurethane 

Size:
Length: 3.5 inches
Height: 1.5 inches
Width: 1.7 Inches

This was one of the first wooden toys where I drilled the windows. In the thicker wood it can be much easier than cutting the widow with a scroll saw. I have trashed more than one body trying to cut the windows with my scroll saw. The round window works well with this truck but in many cases I find the the scrolled window adds character that you just can't get from a drilled hole.

When I first started my Etsy store I really did not know what I was getting into I pretty much did everything wrong according to the SEO experts and yet it sold almost immediately.
