This will be my last one for 6 to 12 weeks. Some of you know I will be doing no wood working until my hands heal. I go in on Fri to have surgery and doc say 10 days they will take out the stitches, then 6 weeks in cast and after , another six week of P.T. to get the hands working right. I do not understand why he does not want me working in the shop..lol. This is An open top stock trailer. some times they use them around here when they do not want the stock to over heat. I have not seen one on here before, So here’s one I will be keeping and eye on here to see what you great wood workers are coming up with. Have fun and leave some great stuff for me to think about while I am down.

All of the above.

Great ruck.

Hand surgery is always scary; although 99+% of the time there is no reason to be concerned we ARE!

Great looking truck and sorry you will be out of the shop awhile.

A couple of years ago, I had surgery on my hands to rebuild the wrist joints. It was all worth it and I am back to woodworking. A couple of suggestions are icing the hands and raising your hand up. It greatly helped me feel a little better. Have fun learning to do things one handed. Best of luck to you.

Hey guys I need some help. I have an 80 yr old man that want me to build him a 1950s model Kenworth Bullnose truck. I have looked all over the web and can not find a diagram, good drawing, or blueprint of one. Do any of you know of a place to fine one. There are lots of photos of them but I was trying to find a line drawing so I could convert it to a plan. Thanks to anyone that can think of a way to find what I need. If any of you find anything please let me know.

That’ so sad news, but at the same time I wish you well. I can’t get enough of your vehicles.

Great job OB_1.

Just make sure you take a bucket of sawdust into the hospital and scatter it around the ward so you wont feel out of place…

PS. It’ll be hard to aim with a plastered hand… so don’t forget a splattering around the toilet… great for hiding urine oopsies…

mm Hey Duck my wife said thanks, the saw dust idea may be just what we need in the bathroom , she remember when I had my shoulders done , and I can see well this time. She’ll will most likely have the boys bring a 55 gal drum to cover the floor..lol

OB_1, As said by all… best of luck… god only hurts the good.. so rob a bank before your surgery.

Not sure whether you are familiar with SketchUp… If not, you have the ideal time while out of the shop to just get a navigational knowledge of it (it’s has a freebie version)... I have a heap of T&J and Gatto models (currently working on some Cherry Tree ones) 3D models in SketchUp. While they are not a blueprint for the build (and I don’t condone copyright infringement and encourage purchase of plans), they’ll give you an idea whether you want to build. Hopefully if you do build, some of the confusing shapes and fits may have been sorted out by me… though I sometimes wonder why designers put doors on car roofs… DOH!

PS. Next to the sawdust… take a BAT (Blood Alcohol Tester) with you… not as a present for your surgeon but for a test drive before the op… 2bsure, 2bsure!

PSS. I like the 55 gal drum… bigger target!
