Hello fellow Lumber Jocks, just finished my newest truck. It’s from the Toys and Joys collection. As usual I did make changes go the plan to make it my own. Painted the wheels this time, I like the way they turned out. As always all comments welcome.

Some pics of the building process.

Great job!!!
As others have said got to love the details.
I was just working on the front wheels for my truck [same plans] and stopped to clean up the shop and came in the house to cool off and low and behold here’s some great ideas for my build. LOL
I was going to have an extra set a wheels and love the idea of the extras for the back, so may just have to borrow this detail, and thanks for the post.
The plans for one of T&J dump trucks used this detail for the back wheels.
Dutchys dump truck, with the extra wheels.
Timing is everything. LOL

Something about good wooden toys that cause grown Men to instantly revert to 7 years old. This is a very good toy truck, so you’ll make a lot of converts with it. Nice job in making wood look like real life.

Thanks for posting, and congrats on the 3.

I love the two layer technique of the cabin, and also the radiator grill with all the dowels in a row. But that aren’t the only things I like. It is the whole truck which is a beauty. Well done!
The pics are small and I can’t see it you used oak or ash for the motor hood. After reading all the comments I now know it is ash . That two layer idea is that from T and J or from yourself?
