I finally finished the second truck and trailer. It was made from red oak, walnut and purple heart. I made it for my cousin. I got dimensions from the T&J plans used on previous build and altered them to look like his truck. I was under a little rush to complete, so I didn’t swap the types of wood. After completing it I wish I had used walnut for the truck instead. He was very happy with it, so I guess it will be fine. Now to start another one for me. I am going to attempt to make my own tires/wheels this time from looking and some others on here.

Turned out really nice. Making your own wheels at first can be a challenge , once you get your jigs dialed in its smooth sailing.
