  • Wood truck, finally finished

    I finally finished this large scale truck, ( 30 inches long ) that I started over a year ago.
    It is my own design, and the third one I have built. Each one I do has more detail than the last one.
    It is made mostly from Pine, with some Basswood and Birch dowel.
    The truck with a trailer is about 6 feet long.
    The trailers are from Wildwood plans, as is the front end loader.
    They have been modified to include more detail.
    Thanks for your interest.

      Amazing detail, Nick! Awesome workmanship to create one heirloom truck. Are you planning to enter it in some shows? It would look good with some blue ribbons.

              Nick, those are beautiful ! Yes, I agree with Jim, you should enter them in a contest or a local fair. They are winners, for sure. Thanks for showing us.

                          Hi
                          Thanks to everyone for their kind comments on my work.
                          The truck was entered in the last Sroll Saw and Woodworking Magazine contest, along with one of my motorcycles. The motorcycle earned an honerable mention, which was much appreciated.
                          This is my first post, on my first blog, something I never imaged myself doing, and I think I suprised my more, by doing it.
                          I will post more of my work as time permits.

                          Thanks
                          Nick

                                I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                                I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                                If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                                After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                                I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                                Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                                Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
