« Part 76: Hummer adding the last few things #12 Part 77 of Toy costruction series Part 78: 1935 Ford #2 »

I’ve hardly got the thing started and wish I had done it way different.

Starting to run out of nice wood and don’t want to put any $$$ into this car so thought I would try one out of some pine shelving and 2×4s.
If worst comes to worst I’ll paint it never ever done one of those before so why not. lol
I know ducky I got the oxygen waiting on you over in the corner.

One thing I’m already noticing is it’s going to take some doing to keep the dings out of this soft wood.
May need to use a towel under at all times for that.

Is it to late to start over and use some better wood?

Just some quick pictures of getting started and seeing which way it wants to go.

Did you happen to notice my big mistake yet?
Hint It’s written right on the side of the part.


Ok I got it fixed now.

Ok!!!
What i did wrong was get in a hurry and cut out the sides and glued them up BUT I forgot to saw the sides down to 3/8” so when I went to put it on the frame it was like 3/4 to fat.
So had to take it to the table saw and resaw the sides while they were all glues up.
But hey now I got a set of 1/4” sides if I want to build another one.

I know it ain’t much but it’s a start.
