This Project was one that was inspired by my grandfather. He sent me a letter with four wheels and a picture of a fire truck with some dimennsions. In the letter he basically said that he is challenging me to build the fire truck off of the picture and thats it. So I did and when he came out to michigan for christmas, I asked for help on the final pieces that needed to be made and we stayed up super late working on this and it will forever be my favorite woodworking project that I made with my grandpa. So now I figure hey this would be good for the contest that just started.
It is made from cherry and maple and I spent probably 3 weeks on it with the final two days spent working with my grandfather. The finish is a basic tung oil and polyurethane finish. This was decided because my dad loves those two finishes.
So all in all hope I do some what good being my first contest and all and happy new year to everyone.
