As a child, my family owned a wooden truck.
Our woodworking skills were very good.
We could do anything we wanted to build.
We also loved to ride our wooden toys.
In fact, I was an avid rider on one of my first wooden toy bikes, which we named the Woodland Roader.
Our son would ride on the back of the bike and drive it to the local playground, which was located just a short distance away.
My wife and I would ride in the back, and he would ride up on the front.
The two of us would be the only riders.
I loved riding in the front and my son loved riding up on my back.
My son would often ask to go in the rear.
I was always hesitant to do so.
It took him several months of planning to learn to do this.
As you can imagine, he was nervous about riding in front, so I had to work very hard to make sure he never did.
I had him ride in front of my house, and then I’d teach him how to ride in a straight line.
It was the first time I’d taught him how he could get from point A to point B without hitting a tree.
It wasn’t easy at all.
I’d spend hours watching him learn.
After I taught him to ride, he would do it again and again and once or twice more.
At some point, I realized that this was the perfect learning tool.
The Woodland would always look better when I was riding in it.
I also discovered that he loved the toy cars I’d built.
He would sit in the toy car for hours on end, enjoying every minute.
I even had him learn how to build a truck from scratch, so he could drive it around.
The idea was simple, and I loved it.
My daughter would ride the toy truck, and she loved it too.
As a teenager, my son began building a toy truck with a little help from me.
It turned out he was really good at it.
When I moved out to a bigger house, he took over and continued to build wooden trucks.
Eventually, I gave him permission to build the toy trucks for his new neighbors.
I let him choose a name for the new toys.
As he built the truck, he had a lot of fun designing it, adding parts and finishing it.
It became one of the best-kept secrets in the house.
After all, he couldn’t get his hands on the toy bikes without permission.
The first truck was called the Woodie.
My family used it for nearly two years, and it was a real hit with my kids.
They would ride it to our house, drop by and play on the ride.
I remember my son saying, “Mommy, I just love it when I ride in this truck!”
My wife would look at me and say, “Oh, you know, your boy is the best!”
When the toy children would ride their toys in front and the toys would ride into the back yard, my wife would say, “[S]he’s the best.”
The toy truck was so popular, I decided to make a wooden toy train, and so did my son.
We started with a cardboard box.
Then, I used wood glue and cardboard to build it.
Then I painted the box black, cut a hole in the top, and cut a slit in the bottom.
Then the box was painted with red paint, then with blue paint.
The red paint was used to fill the hole in a little recess.
Then it was painted white and then black with the glue.
I didn’t have to paint the sides or top, because the glue was so thin that they didn’t need any special care.
Then we painted the entire box red and then white.
We were happy with the result, and we didn’t even need to cut the box in half.
The wood train became so popular that we began building more of them.
Each toy truck had a different size and color, and they all looked just like the other.
My eldest son and I used to build them all at once.
I took my wife and the children to a toy show in a local town.
I told them how they could build the wood trucks in one day and then take the kids to the next show.
My oldest son said, “That sounds amazing, Mommy.
I really love it.”
When I showed him the wooden toys at the show, he just stood there with a big grin on his face.
He said, “[E]verything looks so great.
Can you build one for me?”
I told him that it would take him a whole day to build each toy truck.
He laughed, and told me that he would build one of every type, so we could build a large wooden toy army.
When we arrived at the next town show, my daughter took the boys for a ride on one wooden
