  3. Wooden Toy Truck - Play Pal - Monster Truck

    The second Play Pal Monster Truck I have posted here. I made this one from pine. I'm experimenting with materials and these are only 3.5 inches long. I just about always have shot pieces of 2×4 laying around. I think the mystery lumber they sell these isn't really a good choice most of the time...
  4. Small Pickup Truck Toy

    My daughter has been auparing in the USA for the past year and we are going to visit her in July. This is the gift for the little boy she is looking after. Some more pics As this gift has to be transported as luggage it had to be small enough to not take up too much space in our suitcase...
  5. Wooden Toy Monster Truck

    I really like these little trucks. They are tough, small enough for little hands, and they roll great. A good carpet toy. Most small push/pull toys don't work to well. The wheels are to small and they don't have enough ground clearance. The more they are used the better they work. I made the...

    My grandson is due to be born End of August / early September this year. Grandpa decided he would need something to play with when he gets a little bit older. I like the look of the older Mack trucks and drew the plans in SketchUp from a blueprint that I found on the internet as well as a lot of...
  7. Chevy Bison Semi Truck

    This is the 1st of three trucks for a friend. At first he asked for two, but after seeing this truck, he asked for another. I decided to make something different ( the Bell 222) for the cargo that could also be played separately. I used mounting blocks with dowels to keep the helicopter in...

    Well I got er done, well as far as I'm taking it any way. Just wanted to try a bunch a different stuff and see what happens.

  12. Big Rig

    This is my newest completed project. It is from the Toys and Joys Big Rig plan. Had this been my first Toys and Joys plan it would be my last. There is very little detail and instructions are quite vague.(no seats and the trailer was a hollow box without and an opening in the rear) I would not...
  13. Big Rig (my design)

    So I say my design, but it truly is a compilation of designs. I combined some plans from Toys and Joys, Gatto and my own ideas. ( I do want to thank Dutchy for his rim pattern he provided BIG Help thank you). Up next is a flat bed for the rig. As always all comments are welcome.

  18. Hand Tools
    I've always used hand tools but used a lot of power tools also until.. Stupidly I got my index finger in the mitre saw and then got my bird finger in the TS. Granted I was stressed and rushing and well for a lack of words stupid. Besides the point. I see a TS as indespencible especially for...
  19. Woodturning
    I got a fair deal on a mini Jet a while back, so got to see what the hullabaloo about lathes was all about. At least some what. I've been enjoying it a lot. All my files have really nice handles and so do a those of a few of my friends, for example. Changing speed, by swapping the belt...
