A toy dirt mover I made for my daughter. It is from maple and walnut, mostly, with some red oak for the base and one of the movement pins. It works pretty nicely, you can pick up and move the bin bit at the front and drive it around like a car. I think the car part is the bit my daughter likes the most currently, that and trying to undo all the bolts.

Very cool! I’m glad to see you’re giving your daughter fair game with the toys. Can I play too??

It is based on a wood magazine plan and the bucket is supposed to be in that direction now ;)

If it is that way it is a shovel, the other way it is a backhoe.

Nice job! I need to post photos of a crane I built of the same general idea. Could you post just one photo with her sitting on it so we can get a better idea of the dimensions.
