« Part 224: Semi Truck finished up the underneath Part 225 of Toy Construction series Part 226: Belly Dump Trailer #3.5 »

Got started yesterday on the Toys and Joys Belly Dump Trailer to go with my just finished semi.

The two main frame members are about the only thing that doesn’t have some off the wall angle to it so it’s making for an interesting build.

As you can see in the picture I glued up the outside of the frame and then added the bracing as I went.

I clamped the main brace to the table and as I added parts the glue would glue the parts together but also glue them to the copied plans so everything stay put as I built.

I made copy’s of the parts with my printer and then cut out a brace held it to the wood and marked it a tad big then cut it out on the band saw, checked out what was needed and hit the disk sander to get the fine tuning.

And as always there’s a hundred ways to get this done but this is what worked for me this trip.


It’s a long way from perfect but should serve the purpose for which it’s intended when done.

If I ever build a bridge for something this frame would work a treat, a pain but a treat. lol

ralbuck when I got near the end of the frame building I was about cross eyed and ready for something different.

Gluing the dump box was quite interesting also, not a square part in the lot.
