      Looking great Jim. Can't imagine and little guy I know who would not want these. I may BORROW your idea for my three nephews.

      Thanks for sharing.

                  Yes my own design. I use the cab and hood outline to make Tankers and Semis also. I just search for a line drawing of what I want to make and adjust it to make a template. I make anywhere from 20- 120 at a time so I tweak the template a bit after the first few.

                    Phantom Scroller at "Scrollers Café" made a cute dump truck toy and, thanks to him, this is my version, 8" long 1 1/2" wheels. No scroll saw used,

                        Jim - you are indeed the master at making these toys!

                        I am sure you get almost as much pleasure out of making them as do the kids who eventually get to play with them.

                        They remind me very much of popular 'folk art' toys produced in Michoacan state here in Central Mexican with one major difference . Yours are very much better crafted!

                        Thanks for sharing your work and giving us great ideas to follow.

                        Cheers

                            Installed a metal hinge on the bottom of the lift bed and the rear of the truck frame. I now make them using a 3/16" dowel as a pivot. I need to make a photo of it.

                                The difference between 30° and 45° is amazing on my EX-21. The vibration at 45 is much greater. While having the flat table is great, I have to tilt the saw to the left to keep the upper clamp knob from beating my fingers to a pulp. I cut a lot of bowls-from-boards so I'm used to it. I probably wouldn't...

                                Great job on a difficult pattern. When I want to add color to BB I usually stain the BB before cutting.
