100 % home made from tree to finished product. Been busy the last few days completing these trucks to give to a family that I gave the first toys |I posted on Lumberjocks to. He worked in the logging industry and now will have the rest of the equipment needed for a logging show except for a bulldozer. I made the wheels also, all on a long spindle, cut the blanks on the chopsaw, stained them with ebony stain and then bored the hub with a forester bit. The corners are beveled and tread groove cut in the first operation. I can do these operations very quickly, and it gives a black tire look. Nice on some projects. These toys are not fancy, just birch wood from my place, but will be serviceable. Merry Christmas to all and comments are welcome and appreciated

I also made that dump truck. I especially like the trailer, both the design and the workmanship. Looks nice. Tires are well done. Thanks for sharing.

SO nice!—Outstanding project in all aspects!

What I really like is that YOU made it all!


I do really like your home-made wheels much better than any purchased from China made by the millions ones!

Not to many details but still excellent trucks if you ask me. Wheels look great too.

How did I miss these cool toys?
Really nice trucks and I love the way you did the trailer neck [can’t think what you call it].
