Project Information

Another in my Play Pal monster truck series. This one is very similar to one in a previous project. The body is made from reclaimed oak and poplar. The wheels and axles are birch. The finish is hand brushed amber shellac.

Wheels: 1.5 inches
Body Length: 3.5 inches
Body Height: 1.6 inches
Overall Hight: 2.1 inches

These make great toys. They are very durable. I go to a good bit of trouble to make sure they roll well. The axles are waxed before assembly and nylon washers are used behind each wheel to both act as a spacer to prevent the wheel from rubbing and act as a bearing to help the wheel spin freely. I also break them in by spinning the wheels with compressed air until they run smooth.
