The latest addition to my mobile fleet is a Woodie Wagon, design by Toys & Joys. It is approximately 14” long. I used Cherry on the body and top, Walnut on the running boards, fenders and radiator. The seats and panel trim are of Padauk.

I usually have 2 or 3 projects on going in my shop at anytime and move to the next if I get frustrated with one. These models, while many are extremely challenging, are a lot of fun and can be worked on for minutes at a time if you only have short periods to work on them. I can come home from work and spend a quality hour in the shop working on these and relax. Working on fine details of these small models are much different then larger furniture pieces and present unique challenges.

Thanks for looking.

Great work!
