This truck and additions are made of redwood and finished with shellac. It was made to demonstrate the use of woodworking tools to my 10 year old neighbor. He was allowed to sand and finish the project.

Very nice work on that multi use truck….Kind of remindes me of a Shop Smith Tool Set….I enjoy making toys for my Grandkids, just wish they lived closer to us.

G’Day Jim,
That’s a great design in the truck you’ve made, so much more for the imagination of the youngster.
Were did you source the plans plans?
Cheers, crowie

Hi crowie, I don’t use plans very often. I just start building and develop things as I go along. If you are looking for great plans I would highly recommend toys and joys.com They have all sorts of full scale wood toy plans. I hope this helps.
Kind Regards. Jim

crowie, I forgot to mention if you look at my projects, you will see the cat grader. This was made from the basic toys and joys plans as a starting point. I then researched the internet for images for the correct details to complete the project.

I’m betting he’s a woodworker for life! My neighbor was a carpenter. Still have his handsaw! Nice shapes and forms in the project.
