Made from a combination of maple, cherry, and black walnut and finished with tung oil. The truck has oscillating rear axles so it can traverse uneven ground, and the dump body along with the tailgate go up and down. Thanks for looking.

Some great wooden models are they all for the same young person. I like the idea of using the same cab for all 4 models

I love your trucks, did you make these from plans? I am very impressed with the axel system. Can you add some pics or explain how youy made them travel. I understand the left to right, or atleast think I have that figured out. Just can’t get the up and down from back to front. Or is that last axel only raised on one side?
