Hi, I am new to this platform and reside in South Africa. A knife maker by hobby, but have lately found the pleasure of working with wood. My second project is this attempt at a model of a 28 Chev pick up. Had great fun with the spoke wheels, next time will be better. Literally used off cut pieces of wood, left overs from knife handles. Includes: Rose wood, Black Ivory, Tamboti, Oak, Teak, Kiaat and Maranti.

Hi SA Dykie... Welcome aboard.

Great job of the Chev and even more brownie points for being your second build (where’s the first???).
Like South’y’ mentioned above, love the opening doors… Sure beats “Dukes of Hazzarding” through the windows.

The grill is also an interesting take… good interesting!

Thanks all, love your comments, much appreciated. Will post the first project in the near future. To me what made this project so exciting was when I applied the oil and the grain jumped out at me.

Great project and nicely done.
Ain’t it cool how the wood just comes alive when you add the oil finish.
Need to add how nice your wheels turned out for a first try.
If you haven’t checked it out there’s tons a how2’s around here for inspiration for your next build.

Unashamedly concur… The 2nd. most pleasurable experience on this earth, just behind opening a cheap cask of vino (and drinking it of course)... is… watching timber POP!... and like me, don’t forget to duck...

Like some of those that have commented I am also a model/toy maker and appreciate the work that goes into something like this and as a second project you have done really well and hopefully will see more on these lines.
Also as some have said the woods really go well together and stand out(POP) after the finish is applied
How big is it
