Using Chets Shop
« on: March 31, 2006, 11:19:30 PM »
Chet and I went out to his shop after supper tonight and decided that we needed a log truck. So we built one. ;D   We didnt have a clue what we were going to do until we did it. No designe or plans but I think what we came up wasn't to bad. No finish on it yet, but it has an oak frame with cherry cab and bumper, oak whels and trailer  and cherry and birdseye maple logs. Its pretty good size, turned out to be 24" over all. I like it. smiley_smug01

Really nice!  8)

I am totally lacking in the ability to visualize anything physical - and always amazed at those who can do what you all just did.  :o

What I can do really well is turn a stick into woodshavings...

So, how did I end up here anyway?

There is a guy here that used to walk around precommercial thinning operations and pick up sticks to make walking sticks and canes. It got so he could carve one an hour. I think he got $50 a stick, from something that was left to rot on the ground. He used mainly pin cherry and hard maple.

In the first picture there are seven wheels. They must have made a spare wheel, but I don't see it anywhere on the finished truck.

I think Jeff was making a tag-along trailer but only had one wheel so he had to leave it at Chet's. :P
