1920's Were good years for Ford especially their "C Cab Trucks"While 2020 wasn't much of a year for many of us, 100 years earlier in 1920's it was for Ford especially their C Cab trucks.Towards the end of last year I was asked by a local shop to supply them with some hand made wooden toys.Now I seem to have specialized on trucks so made one for the shop which the owner purchased from me on the spot asking if I could make a couple for the shop to sell.I made two and these were posted in a previous post but then the fun began.The encouragement and support from folk on Lumberjocks is just so good, Jan, aka Dutchy emailed me suggesting I needed to draw up some plans for my designed “C Cab Truck”.At first I dismissed the suggestion but then rethought it and started another truck taking measurement and photos along the way. I then sent a “THANK YOU” note to Jan.Now the real story starts, as Jan kindly offered to draw up a set of plans for me using my photos and dimensions.He blow me away with a 3D drawing first, then over the past few months between he and myself, Jan refined the plans and WOW they are excellent.That's not the end of the story folks, Jan then offered to add my “C Cab Truck” plans to his website as a free downloadable playable toy…https://dutchypatterns.com/links/Please have a look at the link, download the plan and put a smile on a child's face.Thank you to my woodworking friend in The Netherlands, Jan.And if you need any assistance please drop me a note, I'd be more than happen to help.
