Old Pickup Truck Scroll Saw Pattern.

Click to Enlarge
 Download the Pattern Below


This pickup truck is small. It is only 6.25" long. The rocker is under 1.5" tall. I did not include a ton of assembly instructions. You need to study the photos in the pattern for assembly. It's pretty straightforward.

The truck is cut from 1/2", 1/4", and 1/8" thick wood.  The rocker is 1/8" thick and the rear license plate is 1/8" thick.

You can skip the rocker if you don't like it but it reminded me of granny so I included it.

I used commercial 1" wheels and axle pegs from Bear Woods. I also included a pattern for wheels that you can make your own if needed.

I also used the axle pegs for the front headlights. Bear Woods carries a full line of wooden craft parts and much more. Check them out.

OMTech 50W CO2 Laser Engraving Machine 20” x 12” Laser Engraver Cutter with Rotary Axis and USB Port, Ruida Controller, RDWorks V8, for Glass Wood Acrylic Plastic for DIY Home Business

I own this laser as a backup to my main laser. This is less than half the price of my main laser and works just as well if not better in some cases. You can get into this laser for under $1,800. It will cut up to 1/4" thick baltic birch in a single pass. It comes with the Ruida controller which is excellent. That gives you the opportunity to use Lightburn as your control software. The software that comes with the laser is okay but Lightburn is excellent and worth the extra cost. Here is a link to Lightburn.

  • BRING YOUR IDEAS TO LIFE: Create personalized items and unique gifts with the 50-watt laser tube and 12” x 20” height-adjustable engraving table on a wide variety of NON-metal materials. Engraving speeds up to 23.6”/sec and cutting speeds up to 15.7”/sec.
  • HIGH PERFORMANCE + ROTARY ATTACHMENT: Includes a rotation axis attachment to enable engravings on round & cylindrical items. The red dot pointer indicates exactly where the laser will fire for easy setups. Precision stepper motor and high-resolution optics.
  • ADVANCED DIGITAL CONTROLS: Ruida DSP Controller & LCD display for easy final edits and settings adjustments. Compatible with Windows 8, 7, 10, XP, 2000 (Use LightBurn software for macOS compatibility - not included)). Includes RDWorks & Corellaser software, also compatible with most 3rd party programs.
  • SAFETY TESTED: Always operate this laser cutter with proper exhaust ventilation and air compressor (included) to remove excess heat and combustible gases. In addition, the engraver features an emergency stop button for safe operation.
