This is not a single project, but is more to show how I am progressing. My Grandsons like Trucks so started my hobby building them and i’m looking for more challenging projects in the future. So far there has been a quilting Frame for the wife built from a picture she found. There has been some airplanes (have not done to well with them yet). And one clock I found in the Wood Magizine.
I hope to post new and more detailed projects in the futre.

Looks like you had a lot of fun. Now, the G-kids will have even more.
Really nice work.
Some airplanes are not hard to build. Your cranes and trucks qualify you to build a plane, for sure.

Good job. I am in the process of building two of the side dump trucks from Wood mag. I have a 2 year old grandson in Vancouver and a new one due in early December.

I have a nephew that does site prep, so I may end up having to build one for his young son.

They are a fun project and can be a challenge.

How did you manage to borrow the trucks back for the photo shoot? And nice backround view of your shop. I count 4 aeroplanes – more to come?
