Here’s another from the junior high era. This one was made almost entirely from cherry. I was tired of working with plywood and other low grade lumber that we had in shop, so I was allowed to dig in some back corner of the basement where my dad kept a few nice pieces of lumber….
Other than cherry there is just some run of the mill softwood dowel for the wheels and some other accents. I tried turning my own wheels on the lathe but ran out of time. I think I used two different colour stains for the cherry and that was all the finish it has. I don’t think I was much into sanding then as I can see and feel some of the lines from the planer on the trailer :)
And the cherry is not as red as it looks in that first picture, my mistake of shooting on a red background!
