This is a Jeep wrangler I made using the plan from Toys and Joys (with a few modifications). It is made primarily from Alder and Walnut. There was quite a bit of detail in this plan which created a few challenges but it’s kind of fun to figure out ways to do things as you go along.
I’ve been working on two of them with different configurations and will post pictures of the second one when I complete it in a few days.

Super nice project!!!
Love the walnut details as they really stand out from the alder and make the whole truck just jump off the page.

I was trying to figure out why someone took a photo of their full size automobile and posted It….then I took a second look…. Wow!! Makes me feel like I should get every detail right on anything I make for the rest of my life. Your Exquisite work inspires!
