A simple toy dump truck I made for a friend’s grandson.
Wheels and pegs were store bought but the rest was wood on hand.
The chassis and cab are from a trimmed up 2×4 and the bed was made from 3/8” wine crate wood.
The dump truck flap is hinged with an 1/8” dowel and bumps up against the floor of the bed so that it will only pivot one direction.
Pegs are in a bit tighter on the finished toy than they show here. Took the pictures while I was checking the fit and movement of the bed.
Finished with a couple of coats of Danish Oil
Thanks for looking.
