Finally got the plans for the Toys & Joys Excavator.
I had the plans for the Wood Stores Excavator but just wanted to try my hand at building some tracks.
Before I started this project I’ve checked out a bunch of other builds on this site and man there’s some OUT STANDING work going on around here!!!
I’m going to be using walnut and sassafras.
I wanted the sassafras for the root beer smell but it just stinks! LOL
Sassafras looks a lot like oak but with more figure.
They say to start on sheet one and go from there but I wanted to get the base built first and that’s on pages 2 & 3.
Upper track base
lower track base
The main base.
There are a couple a tabs that need to be glued on but I added notches for added strength, plus changed to walnut for a little color.
Gluing on the fender and fender brackets.
All so worked on the engine compartment.
That’s all for today thanks for looking in.
