Refrigerated Trailer

I have had a BOX trailer on my “TO DO” list for some time. I was waiting for just the right woods for the sides. When I picked up this piece of spalted poplar it seemed the time was right. The sides are split from the same board but you would never know it as the spalted pattern looks so much different from side to side. The top is Red Cedar, trim is Walnut. Wooden hinges hold the doors on and swing as they should. Wheels are modified store bought. The truck is from my logging truck post #94107. I will make another new truck someday, but for now this is just the refrigerated trailer.

You guys that make these “toys” just impress the hell outta me. When (or IF) I ever do retire, I’m gonna make some of them. My favorites list grows longer and longer!

very nice Hunter You make your hinges the same way as mine, but you have a better locking system on the doors, I will have to do that with mine the next time I got to build one. If you don’t mind. That is some very nice wood on the sides, kind of hard to find.
