« Part 7: Some assembly Part 8 of A Dump Truck Adventure series Part 9: Wheels 01 »

It has been 10 months gone by since the previous blog in this series. What can I say? Sometimes life gets in the way of woodworking.

I didn’t take pictures during the making. Here are a few pictures of the finished bin in which I will highlight some aspects

I used a box joint for strength using my 5 Min Kerfmaker. See my blog Kerf Maker Box Joints #1: Easy Box Joints - How To for details.

The swivel back flap

The hinge block for the bin

Yet again I used dowels to secure it for strength (View from the top)

Where the bin connects to the chassis

Cab overhang also secured with dowels

Great work!!!
I too find it hard to stop and take picture and it’s funny but some times I’ll take only 3 or 4 but at the end of the day I thought I had taken 10 and wonder where they’re at???
One more time looking good!
