Wood Model A pickup

I guess you would consider this as art, i use to build replica cars and trucks for my customers out of wood. These were very detailed, and every piece was made and carved by hand, most took about 300 hrs to build. Now that my sight is so bad i can no longer build them, but thought you would like to see them, i will post a couple more soon.

Fabulous work! I love the wheels! As a former cabinetmaker I can appreciate some of the techniques you used to make these models, and the craftsmanship involved. Excellent job!

Wood Models

Sorry, dont have any closeups, as these cars were sold a long time ago. I used maple,walnut,pine,cherry,oak,teak, and some bubinga. The wire wheels were turned in my lathe, and then drilled and incerted small wire for the spokes, they are put together just like a real rim.I have been a wood carver for 20 years, and use to sell my carvings in all 50 states, but havent carved now for at least 5 years. Thanks for the nice words, and glad you liked them. I do have photos of a lot of my hand carvings, just e-mail me and i will send them to you. I dont think this site really wants to look at them, as this is a car site.

As long as one car was posted in the pics, I would say post away with pics of any other carvings you have done. I for one would be interested to see, and I am sure other members would to.

wood models

I will try to find some of the photos, and post them in my photo album. Give me a couple of days. I do have some here at home but will have to take some photos of them.

I've worked with wood all my life, both hobby and some years in a factory turning out cherry reproductions of classic styles, but never did any carving remotely like that. That's artwork that requires a good understanding of wood and the subjects. I checked those images out full-screen and even with the jaggies that come from such zooming, the details are amazing, especially the wire spoke wheels. The little pickup's fenders have the smooth curves of metal.

As for more pictures, check the views on those images already. I think Kevin45 nailed it. The photos are interesting and related to cars so they fit right in.
