Last Sunday my dad told me that our neighbours were getting married in six days, and asked me if I would build him a model truck. Our neighbour owns a trucking company and actually races a Kenworth and if I am not mistaken, I believe he has the second fastest truck in Canada. I have never built a model in such a small time period, but I figured I’d give it a shot. In this past week, I not only had school, but also drivers ed. every night for three hours after school. And any free time I had after school was occupied by homework. So I got up at 5:00am every morning to get some shop time in – which is not desirable for a teen. But, its finished. The frame is made out of walnut, the cab out of cherry and other parts out of maple. My dad and I went to Lee Valley this morning and picked up a Razortip wood burning system to do the writing on the back of the sleeper. It worked great although it was my first time wood burning in 3 years, so re-learning of techniques had to be explored… Anyway, he loved the truck and was very happy.
Thanks for taking a look!
