Really nice VW. The detail on the trunk, wheels and hood are outstanding. Did you use a pattern or design it yourself and perhaps be willing to provide a pattern? I have a large collection of toy bugs (real ones too) and this “wood” be a great addition. Also a Baja and GHIA! Great work and wood choice!

The use of differing coloured woods is quite nice. I really like these wooden toy. They always bring a smile to my face.

Thanks for the plan info.. ordered! My husband restored a 48 Willy’s so I had to get two plans – a bug and a Jeep. The curves look problematic –for me—but I’ll give it a whirl. You did such a fantastic job on yours. Thanks again :)

Very nice – I have always wanted to do one of these (any model of car) but never have I even tried.
