This is a companion for the dump truck I previously made. The plans came from Woodcraft Magazine (June/July 2013). I designed and cut the tires on my CNC machine as well as the intricate pieces that make up the bucket mechanism, frame and operating lever. All the rest was done on the table saw. I did use a laser engraver to personalize the engine cover. Can’t wait to see it in action with the dump truck when I go visit my nephew on Labor Day weekend!
