I had an opportunity to take a paying gig and make a custom oak bed for my friend Tony’s pickup truck. I had a fun time working on this and just being with that neat old truck for awhile. I started from rough oak , milled a tongue and groove joint and recess for the stainless steel strips and fitted the bed; disassembled completely and finished it with a penetrating finish on all surfaces; drilled all the holes; assembled with stainless steel carriage bolts. I thought it came out right pretty, and quite a challenge given the various constrictions of the project.
