Beer Truck III
This is the 3rd beer truck I have made in the last 10 or so years. Each one seems to have more, or different details added to them. The main cab and accent wood is Brazilian Cherry I found here in Russia. Accents are from many different exotics and laminates off the bench. Fenders are 5 layers of wood’s, front bumper is 4 layers and has an almost black look to the cherry. The hood has 6 different woods to create the colors. The 154 bottles are from T&J’s stock. Each is hand painted several times and then hand cut foil labels applied, then they were sealed with clear urethane. The barrels are both bought and hand made. I cut them to look like staves and treated them to some gel stain wiped off across the cuts. A hand truck helps the driver haul the kegs to the restaurants. These are a fun build, but the bottles are sure time consuming. Thanks for looking. Doug

“Amazing” just doesn’t cut the mustard, Doug. You have a mind all your own.
