Woodworking Talk - Woodworkers Forum - Lloyd James's Album: Dusty Dozer
Dusty Dozer
I designed this toy, 1st by free sketching, and then on Autocad. I spent a couple of months doing this stage as I was making the 1st parts. The Dozer is about 17" long with the bucket extended. The body is made of Cherry. The bucket is made from 3 strips of Bloodwood. and some of the arms and handles are Pauduck. I also had a tow pin 5/16 dia.made of Aluminum/Bronze with a chain, but was not done yet in this picture. I spent over 2 years, making 2.
I had alot of trouble using wood grades call splids.
The eys of the arms cracked and broke off.
