Thanks to fellow LumberJock “Porchfish” (Don) for the package of wheels and plans! I built this one for the grandson and he’s already enjoying it immensley. Tractor is Cherry for chassis, Pine for body, Bubinga for cab and Maple for bumper. Added some headlights too. I used a meal pin, .25 inch, for the hitch as I was afraid one of the younger kids might pick it up and break a .25 inch wood dowel. I only had partial plans so I had to wing it in a few places but it all worked out okay. I used Laminate flooring for the trailer body and painted it blue because he wants everything blue. Got another grandson that will be ready for one not too long from now, hopefully I won’t forget the lessons learned on the first one! Again a big thank you to Porchfish!
