Project Information

I have not posted much in the way of any woodworking/woodturning as I have been occupied with this little build. I do not keep a record of how long it takes but all I do know is that there are a load of bits that required making some on the small size.
The finished model measures 19 1/2" long 7 1/2" wide and 7" tall.
Made from loads of different wood out of the scrap box the most expensive outlay was the two cans of finish and not counting time.

So nicely do, and really loved following the blog on it's creation.
It's so nice to watch as a creator makes his choices for wood and what parts will be included or not.
And seeing the jigs used can't forget the jigs. LOL

diggerd', you poms may suck at cricket but you certainly rack up the 6's in your craftsmanship.

Beautiful model (sounds effeminate) so… bloody rugged vehicle with fantastic contrasting timber.

Love the dual jerry cans for the schnapps and the shovel to clear the BS spewing from my mouth.

Great job and it deserves a "daily top 3"+.

PS. May I take the liberty to suggest you link your other post to this, to permit the LJs readers to reap the fruits of your full harvest… please!
