My bones haven’t finished knitting back together, and the gum tree chunks are still in the bed, but on the way back from a fast food run tonight, I saw a log pile on the grass in front of the sidewalk, right on my block! I backed up in front of the driveway there, and loaded one very large trunk piece, and a bunch of other large branch pieces in right on top of the eucalyptus. I have a feeling they were out all day, and people picked through the little stuff for firewood, leaving the la...
After much hesitation I began puting some red on and decided to go with “Banner Red”. These are the first of a few coats but getting eager to get the red done and move on the the Upholstery. But after the fabric comes the decals and that is not in my bag of tricks.
well fellow jocks today started out with a small wood gloat, i was blessed with the opportunity of going into some friends land where a tornado went through and salvage some wood that was there, one was a good size dog wood tree, and the other was a very large mimosa tree, i found out that mimosa is a beautiful wood, and i wanted to try working with it, so i took the larger trunks to my local sawyer and while there, i was given a rare opportunity , if you have been to a sawyers wood lot, well...
This makes me laugh almost as much as it makes me cry. There’s a guy in my neighborhood with a big black truck parked on the street, and a pair of blue TruckNutz hanging below, which I must pass and notice every night when I drive home from work. I do admit that the sheer obnoxiousness of it does at least make me smile. But c’mon… beautiful wood burls? Is nothing sacred? I can only hope it’s injection-molded plastic wrapped in some kind of heat-shrink plastic print....
No pics yet or anything, but after looking at an ‘06 Ranger at the Ford dealer with 42k on it, I kind of fell for an ‘05 Tacoma with about 85k on it at the Toyota dealer. A little older, a bit more used, but it just had a lot more I wanted. It’s a certified pre-owned with 3yr/3k bumper-to-bumper, and 7yr/100k drivetrain warranties, power everything, AM/FM/CD, access cab – 2-door, but has a small back, and little half-doors that make loading things/passengers back there...
Here it is. Certified preowned, but no dents or dings or anything. It’s 5 years old, but the engine looks pretty new. Obligatory guy and his new truck photo: “Access Cab,” woo! Let’s go find some dead trees! Few more pics in the flickr set if you need them.
Chevy Truck – Intarsia WoodworkingThe difference between men and boys is the prize of their toys ~ Doris Rowland I have had the pleasure of doing another truck project. This time it is of a Chevrolet Silverado. A while back, I did an intarsia project of my son’s Ford Boss truck (reference Boss post). One of his friends that he grew up playing football with saw the finished project and wanted one done of his truck. He sent me over a photograph of his truck to use as a template and to make a p...
