Load bed and load box bottom

Side panels

Test fitting the side panels onto the load box bottom

I used my 5 min kerfmaker to cut the dados

Gluing the panels to the load box bottom


As this is a toy that must withstand a lot of playing from a little boy, I inserted dowels into all the joints. I used my dowel making jig to make the dowels.

Attaching the railings to the side panels

Inserting some more dowels to strengthen the joints

Final assembly of the load box
