Woodworking Projects

Here are a few of my woodworking projects.

I've made everything from outdoor furniture, indoor furniture, decks, ships, boats, toys, gift-wrapping centers, cabinets, desks and model trucks. I have the most fun making the trucks. I gave away thirty-five or forty to customers when I was doing some safety training and consulting work in the trucking industry. Very few modelers make wooden trucks with the detail I put into mine. Most end up being about 3' long depending on the type trailer and tractor. I have been offered as much as $1,000 each as safe driving awards but I had to temporarily suspend my woodworking due to an eye problem.

These truck pics are AWESOME! Did you mess with the scale to make them look giant? Great detailing!

Thanks. No, I just winged it. No plans. No models. No scale. Just a few photos of their trucks and trailers, a couple of rum 'n cokes, a saw, some glue and waa laa, a truck. This one is 33" long.
