Project Information

Although I have made several of this type trucks, this one is the most detailed. Then I decided to add the teardrop trailer to kick it up a notch. The main wood is Rosewood I found here in Russia. The laminated pieces and bumpers are White Oak, Purple Heart, White Oak. The spalded looking wood is from a local trade day purchase and NO I don't know what it is. Birdseye Maple is the running boards and Cocobola accents throughout send it out looking good for the trip. The roof of the camper is simple White Pine stained to look like a tin roof. The luggage has one other piece, maybe it was also a hunting trip? Doug
