While recuperating from a ruptured Achilles tendon I managed to make my second Woody Wagon as an special favour for a friend. His wife is buying it from me at an agreed price and all the money will be going to support the Auckland children’s hospital (Starship). So far I have managed to raise close to $1000,.00 for this worthy charity.
This woody is made from dark Walnut, NZ Kauri, Yellow Cedar, some Holly and Maple.
Tyres are once again ebonized and a coat of Tung oil applied all over.

You have made such a beautiful car. I like it very much. I’m curious how you made the wheels?

Hi Dutchy I cheated with these wheels. It is a Toys & Joys plan and I got the wheels as part of the kit. However I did inlay the white walls myself and for this I am lucky to have a friend with steel lathe that works fine for doing inlay work on wooden wheels.
