This has been on my mind for months now. Ever since I saw a fellow LJ's post on the bulldozer. I have been making these smaller version of my 2×4 cars for Christmas gifts (I’ll post after Saturday), and REALLY wanted to try one. I am very infatuated with this size of car, and my head is swimming with ideas for them. My kids have all been so patient with watching toys come in the house to cure. It’s been several months now. But since I’m all done, and the gifts are all wrapped up, it’s about time they can have something to grab hold of and keep. :)
The dump truck bed is a learning on my part. I used a 1” bit to cut the waste out, and learned that you CAN NOT see where you are drilling. Next time I’ll mark out the outside space and align the edge of the bit only. The rest will be chiseled out anyway, right?
Anyway, they’re a hit…...back to the shop!!
