Thanks Guys ! Not sure about the vision, but did enjoy making it. Nothing was measured. Everything was eyeballed … very quickly made.The paint was the bottom of the can…. gooey … Really set quickly.It drys very hard. Made it in a day…
Nothing too serious ….

These spur of the moment, off the cuff projects are often the most fun and seem to become favorites unusually easy to our friends and families. Really cool idea.

I believe that you buy it piece of news, then you destroy her and in the end you manage to make her again new with more personality and style, it is a strange process with which you have obtained a nice result.

Looks like something ready to be taken by train robbers off the Rio & Sante Fe line. Good work and quite a creative transformation.

My next step is to rub down the mahogany and oak inside and out with steel wool and Briwax … tudor ….
