Another small part to make. Very small.

I started with glueing 3 pieces of wood together.

After it was dryed it was cut in half. And sanding could start. Below you can see the process.

Making it slant:

Radius making:

And again disc sanding work to do and make it smaller:

And smaller:

And smaller:

And then it was glued on the truck and “clamped” with Duct tape:

This ornament is very small and hard to see on the truck:

And for that reason another picture:

Thanks for watching

It’s fun to see the process for making such small parts. Nice work Jan.
