A 1950’s Bell Telephone lineman’s truck I made. Walnut and Birch with a Birch and Mahogany inlay for the Bel-Tel logo on each door. Finished with tung oil. The black and white photo was all I had to go off of, so the front end is the result of some creative license. Also has a steering wheel and bench seat in the cab.

Nice job.
