Wooden Truck Project

This will be our advisory project for the next six weeks. It will be a challenge, but it will keep the 8th graders occupied for their final days in our middle school. If all goes well each of the 16 students will gain some experience and they will each get to take home a pretty cool looking antique truck made from walnut, oak and birch wood. We may even see it displayed at their graduation party in about four years! (Click photo for a larger image. We will be using the larger image to see the details as we build this 16 inch long truck.)
