This is a toy built from plans by Toys and Joys out of Lynden, Washington. Made mostly of highly figured curly maple. The truck is setting on a curly koa coffee table I made 35 years ago while stationed in Hawaii

Wow….looks awesome! I’d say it’s about 32 inches long?? Very similar to the one one I made out of maple and walnut….but different design. That curly maple sure makes it pop! Got my plans from Wood magazine. Looks like yours have more detail in it than mine. I just started working on a T&J plan today…1949 truck.

I love this tractor trailer – dozer project. My father passed away 5 years ago and he use to operate a D6H high track dozer. This reminded me of him. How does a guy go about getting plans for something like this! Obviously I’m new to woodworking and would like to get started doing this as a hobby.
