Gents, so I decided to start another project. I had a huge chuck of cherry on my wood carts so I decided to mill it down and make something with it. Haven’t decided what other woods to use but I think I’m going to make the wheels out of walnut for the tyres and maple for the rims. I also have a small chunk of bloodwood I would like to incorporate into the build. Maybe I’ll use it for the seats.

I hope it’s okay for a retired Aussie sailor to hitch a ride on this Hummer…

The ship must have sailed and you missed it… the dust hasn’r even had a chance to contemplate settling on your previous project.

Looking good… You all build way faster than I do. I am still working on the jeep. Yikes.

Looking good Jason. I wish I had a large chunk of Cherry. I just bought 1.2 metres x 230×50 , ( 4ft x 2”x 8”) cost me $70.52 in New Zealand.

No way in hell am I letting any dust settle on my Buick. lol Besides, I’m not the type of person that likes to sit around and watch TV or play video game, crap like that. I’d rather be in the shop.

The piece of cherry I bought was 8ft x 2”x 8” and I spent almost $200 for it. When I saw it I couldn’t pass it up. Just the look of the wood had me sold. Ha

I come in from rubbing some finish on the Buick and what do I find, a new project to keep me busy watching. :-]
I guess I’m in the second row but will be looking over everyone’s shoulders.
Be sure to slow down a tad when you get cutting out them front fenders as they can trick you or at least they did me.
Now back out to play with the wheels some more. :-[

Bruce, got the fenders all cut out (didn’t want to rush it) now I’m trying to figure out how to cut the area out for the turn signals. Any ideas on how to do that?

Jason, I’m pretty sure Dutchy did some good looking mudguard mounted taillights on his Buick blog.

Fair suggestion crowie, however, as an asside, have you guys considered a Ken doll arm poking out the window for a signal?

Yep! Ducky got it right for sure.

Well at least thought about it.

This Aussie bloke such doesn’t do doll’s of any sort, thank you Bruce!

Maybe something that happens “south of the border”????
