My father in law just traded his 1979 Beetle for a nicer 1978 Beetle. He asked me if I could help him make some wooden floor mats for it. I did some research and found some people making these things for a Kubelwagen. Some were using Teak or other exotic wood for water resistance. My father in law wanted something cheap and easy to make. I said fine. Besides, it keeps with the budget style of the Beetle.

We cut all of the pieces and attached the slats together by cutting a dado in the bottom for the cross pieces. Lots of glue and a few clamps and we were done. Overall, it took a little over one day to construct all four floor mats. He is very happy with the fit and finish of the floor mats. They are unfinished wood. He typically only uses them for show and takes them out when driving around.
