I shaped the body of this car with a spokeshave and rasp after cutting the profile with a handsaw, then turned the wheels, driver and axels. This project was made out of an Oak log salvaged from the firewood pile. I finished it with Organic Boiled Linseed Oil and added a yellow tint to the wheels using Turmeric :)
