I agree with a1Jim, nice grain. Looks like tiger stripe camo. What type of wood is that.
Wonderful work!

The truck is made out of recycled oak flooring out of my sons flooded house. The shed is pine.
A solder joint let loose in the upstairs bath and flooded the house from upstairs to the basement when they were on holidays.

G’Day “lenb”,
I am always in awe of blokes who can make such beaut looking toys without plans, well done indeed.
Top job on the use of recycled timber, I love using old timber; it’s grain & colour are always good plus the timber is dry & true.
