I made 5 of these trucks for Christmas gifts for my son, nephews, and friends kids.
No plans other than a photo of a similar one made by another woodworker.

The wheels and axles (dowel) were bought at Lee Valley. The last 2 are just some fun easy ones I decided to try too.
Thanks for looking.

Great job, the contrasting wood sets them off nicely!
