Mining Truck from a Toys and Joys plan. The wood used is Macrocarpa and Rimu from New Zealand. Finished with a couple of coats of Danish oil.

More pictures can be found here

Took a while to make as calving and milking have gotten in the way. Must admit though it was a fun project and I will be starting another one soon. I’ll TRY and take on the hummer, we’ll see how far I get…

Cheers fellow lumberjocks.

Great piece of work.

So who is going to be the lucky recipient of this fine piece of “machinery”?

Looks good – the Hummer shouldn’t be difficult when you can do work like this.

Great Truck. The detail is wonderful.
Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Don’t get me wrong this truck is amaizing, but those tyres are incredible. Wooden tyres are my opssesion -I like them most on wooden vehicles.
