Back two years ago I got talked into building an wooden toy air tri plane and it fired back up in me my love of building toys.
The second toy I made was a hot rod as shown in the first picture, it’s funny but I thought this was a great size to build but have come to find out if you want to add details you got to go bigger at least in my case.
It is made with cherry and walnut.
Here's the constrution blog.

Here'is the little hot rod post.

Nice job #4, incredible how one advances in such short a time… and that is not being derogatory to your earlier build.

Back two years ago…
