Toy Construction #184: Nailing things down and front suspension

02-15-2018 12:06 AM by htl | 6 comments »

I’ve been calling it a Mack but it looks a lot more like a Kenworth T880 Dump Truck to me so far. Here’s some better pictures of how I did the front suspension.I will be adding a wood spacer on top of the spring to keep it in place.But once the wheels are in place there shouldn’t be much side ways movement.

I needed to build the body first because I extended the cab and didn’t want to make the frame till I could see what was going to happen. The reason for the truck is to find a place for...

Turning Photographs into Wood Art

03-18-2013 01:23 PM by Chris Mobley | 2 comments »

Some of my favorite projects to do is turning photographs into wood art. Each piece is unique and has special characteristics that mean something special to the customer. Taking something that a customer loves and turning it into artwork preserves that thing along with the memories that surround it. Some of the most common request that I get for these types of custom projects are vehicles, pets, homes, etc. I enjoy creating these because each one is custom and there is not another like...
