Early in the 1900s, horse drawn machines were being updated to steam and reciprocating power to build roadways and prepare building sites for an industrial world.

Our wood versions represent five of the most common machines from those bygone years. All are in one plan package!

All 5 in this plan package!

Display at work, on a shelf at home, or as gifts for construction friends or for youngsters who sit on curbs watching machines at work.

Each one has moving parts for working the ground. Fun, educational, and fairly easy to build. For reference the dump truck is 12” long x 5” high.

Forest Street Designs, since 1971, are inspired from everyday and historic objects and from the places they have visited across the world. An extensive effort is made designing and publishing each plan’s graphics and text. Often several prototypes are developed to verify accuracy. Most patterns are full size.
