1932 Buick Sedan #2

The project page is here.

Finally got up the gumption to get in the shop clean it up and start on the 32 Buick.
I get out of breath just walking to the shop but once I get sat down can get some work done. :-]

Going with walnut with oak trim this time around.
My cabinet shop friend got me some nice walnut chunks to play with.

I don’t have the patience to glue on the small trim parts so will just make them part of the main build.

Crowie there ain’t nothing quick about this one got 3 short days in it and yesterday I went out to the shop and had forgot to turn the power on in the house so went back in and that finished that day.
If I can get out there and sit down I can catch my breath and get some work done, if not well.
Maybe now that it’s getting warm out side I can get some gumption up.
It sure felt good playing in the shop and then having something to show on here always makes my day. :-]

Looks good Bruce. You are just about where I’m at. I was too far into the project to start a blog. Wish I had started a blog at the beginning.

Bruce you made my day, and he just is started. I hope you will enjoy making this one despide your breath limitation. It’s also nice to see some #4 influences. I have made mirrors on it, but from historical view it’s maybe better not to place them ;)

Looks good. You made more progress in a day then I did in the last few weeks. I need to get busy. Oh, wait, I am busy; that is part of my problem, alas.

My dad had a similar breath issue. We put a resting stump between his house and the shop/barn. Of course it wasn’t worth much in the winter, but the rest of the year it helped. He could not get far without needing to sit.

I like the walnut and you did a great job on the trim. Hope the warmer weather will make it easier for you to be in the shop (and otherwise). I think my time in the shop does me more good than the tons of meds I take every day.
