Stripping the sides of the Teardrop trailer was alot of fun…and there are so many creative ways that you do it. I did a lot of searching and staring a a blank piece of plywood before deciding. I found inspiration and ideas, for instance, looking through collectable cars magazines. While one might not recognize them…there’s a little bit of a 57 Chev in the fins, and I looked real hard at some old Pontiacs, Buicks and Fords.
The Yin and Yang of this trailer is the use of many contrasting woods…starting with purple heart to anchor the bottom, the main body with western red cedar, and accents of ash and alaska yellow cedar.
When doing a stripper design, you want to make sure that you preserve the long sweeping lines of full strips running front to back. That adds style and makes the shape flow.
