Love the Hefty loader Don. Can I ask what timber you used?

Everything is poplar except the 2 larger side pieces. They are oak plywood. All the pieces as well as the wheels were heat treated in the oven to darken the color. The darker colors were left in longer. The whole toy was treated with bees wax/mineral oil.

I don't recall exactly but I know I did one without paint in 3 hours. The painting takes some time but it's not actual work time. Mostly waiting to dry and cure enough to sand and put on the next coat. Every time I  do a painted toy I swear I won't do it again but they just look so darn cool I end up doing it.

Nice work. I have a couple of questions. Are you satisfied with the design of the dumpbed pin and it's rotation? Could you post a photo of the dump truck with the bed open? Also, have you tried the boat in water? I could use some feedback on how well the ballast system works for you. Thanks!

I Like the Hefty Dumper (Well, I like them all), I have the plan for this but haven't made it yet.
Waiting on more wheels to come in. 
I like the contrasting timber colours on yours. Well done.

Cheers
