My most recent completed toy project. It is mainly Oak and Walnut. It is a Toys and Joys pattern, I have only been making toys for a couple of years, i have a lot to learn yet. I do not have an pic of the build, i need to remember to start doing that. I have a few other toys i have completed will post as time permits. All comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

That is a really nice job. I don’t remember seeing that model in the T & J’s catalog. Can I offer you a tip for cutting thin slices of dowel? I bore a hole through a piece of scrap timber the size of the dowel you want to cut. Then I slice it down to 1/16 in the band saw and while the dowel is still in the piece of scrap material it is easier to hold and sand. This way you don’t get any chipping of the edge of the dowel.

Very nice project ,especially like the two tone doors and the working ramp is way cool.

” I do not have an pic of the build,”
I’ve been trying to take pictures of my builds and stopping as I’m working is hard and at the end of the day think I’ve took plenty a pictures then start looking and wonder where the pictures went. LOL

I love the detail and craftsmanship on this truck. It’s a wonderful eye catcher.
