Hi Peter,k

Thanks for the great post of wood toy trucs this morning and for the carefully and skillfully composed set of photos. This made my day! I especially like the choice of woods and the finish. The dark color of the wood wheels is a nice touch. The tandem trailer is masterfully done. 

We look forward to seeing more details on your tandem dump trailer design. Well done!

John,

Have added some more details of the trailer.  Was trial and error, but started with same chassis and wheels, axles etc as Peter B truck design.  As you can see, the first front axle pivot was. An error and I had to move as it was too far forward.  Just cut out enough of the chassis for the front wheels to pivot around and fit underneath.  Front axle dolly (what we call them in Australia) I made as I went, this is the third try.  Tipper is as per Peter B plans just made to fit.

Great set of trucks.
I really like those Jarrah wheels. 

One of my favourite timbers for delicate parts. Getting harder to get though.

Cheers

Thanks for posting these. It's very helpful to see how other toy makers do things. While its nice to see the finished products the the good stuff is in the details.

Love it! Like the addition of the dolly and tipper. My dad has a shed full of reclaimed jarrah and he re-dresses it for me when I need some.
