Crew trucked finished!   I used oak, ash and pine to make this little guy.  Love these mini guys.  Thanks so much for free patterns.

John,  I may have found an error on the mini constructors 5 and 6. ( Just a beginner, so could be wrong). On all four, the axle hole is 1/4 and so is the dowel, therefore the wheels won't turn.  I think that maybe the axle hole should be 5/16 like on the others?   Thought I would check it out with you. No problem though,  I just used axle pins to attach the wheels like other minis and it worked just fine.  Great little truck and trailer. 

Little story:  I took this to a craft show recently and a little boy stuck an animal in the trailer, and we couldn't get it out!  So mystery animal for anyone who get it!!


Can never have too many clamps!

Hi Rose, These look really great. Yes, there is a mistake in the plan set and the axle hole should be 5/16". Thanks for the heads-up!
