Well here are some pictures of the truck as it sits right now. Tomorrow I'll add the bumpers, axles, transfer case and driveshafts. Ill get some more pics once I have the rest of the truck done. But does anyone have an idea of how I should finish it? Like I said its for my nephew of 11 months, so the finish needs to be safe for him to put in his mouth. Any ideas?
each wheel is made from two pieces of black walnut. I drilled them out and then sanded them to the right dimensions, then I made a jig to use on the table saw to cut each tread. After that each tread was filed down on the edges, then the two halves were glued together. After the glue was dried, the outside edges of all the wheels were sanded to a bevel. Voila!
