  • 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

                                by cwmagee
                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                                The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                                Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
