    Dump trucks I made for Grandsons

    Seen a plan in Wood magazine the other month. Told my wife I was going to try to build one for the Grandson, needless to say 2 had to be made.
    Mistakes made but over the last month , they are happy with the way they are looking. Last evening youngest one seen his , but he tells me it would look a lot better if it was painted. Told him no way
    So here are a few photos of finished trucks about 16" long and 4-5" wide.
    Noticed the one photo flash didn't work.

    Thanks in advance if I miss someone.

    Those are too nice for the grandkids to play with.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    They came out great!
    I don't know, I think once they get a few nicks and some patina on them over the years, when your grandkids are older the trucks will bring back fond memories.

    Oh I know these two boys , they will play with the trucks . Nothing on them that can't replaced ,repaired or reglued.
    Plus like you said they will have fond memories later in life.
