Just completed the trailer for the Western Star tractor. I purchased the plans from T&J at the same time with plans to put one of my excavators on for display. The trailer is made mostly of walnut and what I thought to have been Cherry (recycled from a shipping crate) is actually African Mahogany. I used pine for the wheels and painted then black. Thank you for looking, s always all comments welcome. Merry Christmas.

Great job, these all turned out so nice and really go well together.
Down the road you’ll be glad the cherry turned out to be mahogany, I say this because in my case a caboose I built two years ago was done in walnut and cherry and with age the cherry has darkened to almost match the walnut in darkness.
Come to think of it mahogany darkens with age too but I don’t think quite as dark.
Again beautiful job!!!
