I’ve admired all the cars and trucks made by many LJs and am finding they are quite addictive to make. Most of these plans are from wooden-toy-plans.com. I made 2 of each – bodies are made from pine and the sides are made from purple heart, walnut, jatoba and cherry. The bodies of the futuristic racers are poplar and those wheels are walnut. Some of the wheels are from hobby lobby on the others. What a hoot to make. :)

Cool trucks. You’re right, they are fun to make and can get addictive. Nice job mixing the hardwood with the pine. It really makes them stand out.
