Every onece and a while i like to take a board out of the scrap bin and see what happens. This is what happened when i grabbed a 2×4 and a couple of pieces of left over walnut pieces and some dowel. I ended up with nice logging truck and trailer and a lowbed to go with it. if anyone if following what i do for projects they might have figured out that I like trucks and equipment.

Great looking project. Some of my favorite projects have been toys for my grandchildren, begun with no more plans than a pencil sketch on a block of scrap wood.

As I commented on another thread, I have a hard time with the concept of “scrap” when something that nice results.

Good looking truck. Did you use the remote control crane for parts corralling?

That looks really fun. Nice job on the toy. I can sense the “warm-fuzzies” when the kids play with your creation.

Great toys. I was confused. I had to look at the pictures a couple of times. The third truck is different from the first two. I was looking for the log hooks on the empty trailer.

Great job.
