Had an order to make a couple of dump trucks for my Aunt for her twin grandsons-so here was my attempt. 

To all who check this out have a Happy and Blessed new Year.

Bob (Jenniesdad) - Give yourself a big pat on the back ... this is not an attempt as you describe it ... you have presented a wonderful hand crafted natural wooden toy made with love by cousin Bob.
Hard to tell from your photo, but, did you apply a top coat or waxing?

Udie-
   I applied an Orange Oil finish I had in my shop. I use it on my puzzles and small toys I make.
   To All-Thank you for the compliments!  I want to build up an inventory this year as I have been invited to a local craft show.  Just have to get thru these 50 plus hour work weeks at my full time job!

Bob (Jenniesdad) - Nice top coat and I am guessing it also smells nice. We love to hear about craft shows. Don't forget to take a couple photos of your table and share with us your observations and experiences.
