This is a truck I found and wanted to share. I know I'm not perfect but still learning. It came from a scrollsaw workshop. I finished it with Cynthia bees wax. 20171110_123435.jpg  20171110_123500.jpg  20171110_123538.jpg  20171110_123549_001.jpg

Nice work! How did you make the wheels? They are really well done. Could you post photos of the process? We would all enjoy learning how this is done.

Thanks John. I will try to post pictures of the wheels next week. It turned out to be a lot simpler than I was thinking.

Thanks for the positive responses. 

Bruce, I am on Steves site. I wasn't sure if I could mention names that is why I said a scroll saw workshop.
Thanks,
David

This was a fun build, I built it about 4 years ago and as dmjones said it's a lot easier than it looks.

 they do look great similar to ones we made a few years back we used a forstner bit for the inner cut out then a hole-saw for the outer and a bandsaw set at an angle for the cuts worked well but takes a lot of time looks brill though

Thanks for sharing!  I have a request for a monster truck right now and was going to approach the wheels a different way.  I'll take alot of pictures and possibly video of the one that I build and will share it with everyone.  This is a great build and gives me alot of ideas.
