Johnson & Sons Custom Woodworking (me) designed, built, and finished this rocking hotrod! Built from some old pine I found in my buddies garage. Finished with a couple rattle cans and a few quick coats of lacquer. Not as awesome as the one I built for my son, but cool none the less!

“Cool none the less!”. Agree, it certainly is cool.

Looks great. Im working on a couple of miniature hot rods, and im trying to get some wood bent for the headers. Its tough, and thats why theyre not done yet! I like the blower on yours….

And it goes on! VERY NEAT!
I made a “TaNader” toy box; )see avatar), but it just holds toys and hauls them home with the winch. No Rocking!”

I really like to see “THINKING past the pattern”!

That hot rod rocks! Ok lame pun… but seriously that is sweet. Makes me wish I was a toddler again!
