I have been wanting to jump in and make some wooden Trucks. I finally got some time to do it. The First one is a Lumber Truck, the second is a logging truck, the third is a pickup truck and the back does open. Finally my favorite one is the cargo truck. The back door does open, and I just love how it came out!! They are made out of all wood with no metal at all. Was a great project, and I look froward to making more! Thanks for looking and all comments welcomed!

Sweet. I like ‘em.
Looks like a lot of fun to build and to play with. Good for you. Nice simple lines.

Questions: Your designs? How did you do the wheels?

THanks for the comments.. Steve-The designs I got off a toy design site called toy makers press, they also have a bunch of other plans these are the first that I have made from them. I couple of the trucks I used there base and went with it. As for the wheels I bought them from, If you buy in bulk they are really cheap. In fact cheaper to buy than to make.. Richard, no I did not use a 2×4 for the base. It was 3/4 inch pine.. I will have to remember to build the trucks for Christmas for children in need. Once again thanks for all the great comments!
