This project I completed the end of 2016. It’s all Oak. I ripped my big thumb wide open on the table saw, had to take hyatatus from the project for a couple weeks. Ed

Awesome truck- not so much so about the thumb.

My Dad used to talk about driving these when he was in the Army.

Yes and Awesome looking truck with nice detail. I feel the pain about your thumb. I did the same think but it was
way back in 1968. I was lucky it wasn’t a cross cut. Hope your ok!

Great job Edwin... Only spoiled by that dainty table cloth… at least it could’ve had some scattered breadcrumbs or coffee stains (or vino stains for that added affect).

But then again a clean tablecloth would be handy for the thumb… at least you didn’t cut your little thumb or there could have been more damage… Jokes aside, been there done that, hope all digits are operational and the scars stay on the thumb and leave the brain.

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

A very nice truck and well made. I know how much work it is to build such a beauty.
