Had to try to make a seat base for a Model A Ford coupe. Had broken pieces to use as a guide.

Here is finished product! Client was well pleased.

Made from 5/8th plywood, modified just slightly from pattern to add strength.

A bit challenging as some pf the wood was missing from the original. Still fun and a learning experience.

I have been promised to drive it around the block! The last A I drove was about 52-3 years ago!

Always great to make it out of wood yourself. I never had the opportunity to drive one myself but at least I can say I was in one. Way to go.

Great that you were able to fabricate this part for a beloved old car!

Would love to see photos of the car, too!

I am supposed to be eventually allowed to drive this A! When I do photos will be posted!

Might be a while though—some of those projects take a few years.
