Woody Wagon restoration from the ground up , crazy amount of work and lots of fun have worked on six of them now this one was first – we made all the mahogany panels , and replaced all rotten Birch , restored and refinished the rest.

before photos are old will not load , photo 4 is doors before and yes the whole door is wood!
next photo is back door and trim parts during finishing ,Note roof ribs are all curved Birch.

My uncle, whom I admired, was a guy from the Iron Mountain area of Wisconsin. He did great stuff with knotty pine from creates of WWII. He had a woody!

Thanks for the trip!

Great work, as a mechanic I can appreciate the work and effort put into repairing such a classic. Sadly they do not make them like this anymore.
