This WWII military style jeep was made from oak. The seats were made from purple heart and the tires are from IPE.This project was lengthy to construct but fun. Thank you Woodwrecker for advising me on the grill.

Great stuff, I love the old Willies.
When I was in the Army, the summer of 86’ we had to decommission the jeeps in our unit, (2/504th PIR 82nd Abn. Div.) to make way for the Humvee’s coming in fall. We had to strip them of all gear; radios, tools, sand tables etc… then drive them down to the CAV unit where they were all being marshaled. Needless to say, a bunch of 19 and 20 year olds had a few detours on the way to the CAV unit, and the huge Drop Zones at Fort Bragg became our playground for about 3 weeks. We never totaled one, or got seriously injured, (got thrown out once jumping mine) but some other units did on these little sojourns.
Thanks for the great project, and bringing back some fun memories.
-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

I made a mistake on this post it was woodscrap who gave me some advice on making the grill. My apologies to both of you. You are both extremely talented woodworkers. ED
