Hi this is my first attempt at model building. I used to drive a 1973 Beetle and thought it would be fun to make one out of wood. I used walnut, poplar and some brass sheet for the headlights. Lots of curved pieces so I got to run my bandsaw quite I bit. The tires started as circles cut on the bandsaw. If I were to do this again I think it would be more fun to do the tires and axles on the lathe. Not sure when but I think it would be fun to revisit this one with some different color and species of woods.
