This project was done with my 36 year old son, because he wanted to learn woodwork. It was a lot of fun and now he is making trailers for it. To turn it into an Aussie road train. A B double. Iw will be working on my next project. See next post…:o)#

Update: it helps having a neighbour who is a sign writer to help with decals. Trailers now in progress…

Thanks for the kind comments. The wood is Australian. Red is Jarrah and light is Victorian Ash. Plans from toys and joys.
There is a video of the painting of the wheels at.

This is a fantastic truck. The correct use of wood to form all the contrast is awesome. Can’t wait to see the trailer. And what will be on the trailer?
