I am just a "week-end" woodworker. All my projects are made in a small basement shop with basic tools and skills. Router, table saw and a skil saw are my main power tools. I started this as a hobby years ago and it still is, but recently people have taken notice and I've started to get orders for many of my projects. Guess my skills have improved. Mostly I make smaller projects but will try anything. Would love to have comments on my projects, even the "hey Jeff, next time try this" type. Really feel i am with the pros in here.

Hi Jeff, Thanks for the compliment. I dont know if you looked at my other work and got the idea I’m good at doing rounded tops but I think I kind of got lucky with the ones I did. It was trial and error that I got the lids built. what I did was cut some slats to the length that I wanted. I cut them 2in. or 3in. wide. Then a 5 degree cut on both sides of the slats and laid them down beside each other on two pieces.of wide tape. The tape was at least twice as long as the slats. Then I pulled the tapes together to form an arch. If they looked like they would line up properly I laid them down flat and applied my glueI pulled them back together and taped them real tight. Make sure you have them lined up nice and straight. Dont worry about the extra glue, just simply wipe off with a warm slightly damp cloth. Let dry and remove the tape and you should have a nice arched top. Remember practice before glueing. I hope that helps you a bit. Let me know. Johnny”R”

Jeff, I looked through your projects and think you have done an outstanding job. I was especially interested in your mail trucks and banks. I have done a few but not as many as you. I have now migrated to vintage cars but owe a lot to when I started on mail trucks. I did one truck using the 1960 door that you have used but I like the 1906 soaring eagle much better. The castings were not as good back then but they seem to fit with the 1920 style of truck. I didn’t notice if you did a plexiglass windshield. Also, I was able to find the U.S. Mail logo for the side of the truck
