Grandpa Bear, John, and everybody else,  The main part of truck the 1 1/2 is select pine,  fenders are usually oak, and all of the trailer sides and van sides etc are ash.  When I order my 1/4 inch ash I usually get a big  variety of patterns so makes for some interesting looks.

 Nice set of vehicles, very wll done.

How did you make those arches? By hand or CNC because they all look exactly alike to me. Getting those axact the same is - for me - still a challenge.
Tips and hints are welcome [smile]

Peter V,  I cut the arches with a scroll saw.  I cut out all my stuff with a scroll saw. I guess a lot of practice, no tips really.  But for the arch part I do round them off a little with a spindle sander if  I am not satisfied with the scroll saw cut.
