oh I forgot a few things, like the front steering turns and the wheels roll, and the seat swivels, and the plans are from Gatto’s

Looks good o’s’tooth...

Without being rude… at least attempting in an inoffensive way… if you could upgrade your photography skills to a fraction of the level of your woodworking skill… I for one would appreciate your presentation more… taking nothing away from the build itself.

A few closer up, from different angles and out of the shade would present your creation better.

PS. You can always retro fit some extra photos in the body of your project… only downside is that they dont get magnified like the gallery photos.

PPS. If you are shy about posting photos taken with a camera/phone that have the tendency to “fall over” on their side… may I suggest you Google ”free metadata removal software” and process prior to posting.l

Awesoem details! Why did you took this photo in a shade? Few centimeters left would be better view.

Or just just have a glass of vino and wait for the sun to move.

Sorry o’s’tooth... but in the words of Arlo Guthrie… ”We have a movement!”.

So true!

Also the photos can be improved; although, I have trouble getting this site to accept any of my higher resolution pictures.
