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.

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.

Your work is quite impressive. Those trucks look terrific.

Have you built any tractors?

Never tried any type truck or any other type play toy. Never seen a plan for making one either. The plan for the truck came in a Wood working magazine I had gotten. If it had been a tractor I would have tried making it instead of the truck.
Over the years I've made a barn, a shop and doll house for the grandkids.
Not sure what the next thing I will try, the one grandson likes trains so it may be some type train car.

Man I got to say, that's some nice work you've done there. Everyone involved should be very proud of them for years to come. Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed seeing them.
