  • Christmas gift for son

    My son loves to restore old trucks and cars. He has an ancient Ford truck he's been working on for a while.

    This is for him.

    Pattern is by Trapper

      hey! nice rippersmom.

      I built bikes for quite a few years, (aye old arthritic UK biker holds hand up) and loved to tinker and strip/rebuild/build etc bikes.) would have been absolutley over the moon if my old man (sadly deceased) had done that for me.

      Kudos man for just the jesture, let alone the good work on the piece.

      hehe sorry mom, old habits, anyone in my book has kudos they are man, as in Mmmm you know what I mean if your over 50 and still hip. hehe.

        When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

            @Jan & Fran,
            Thanks, I think he will be surprised and happy when I give it to him.

            I dig it, and am most definitely far over 50 these days. Thanks.

            I don't know anything about Trapper, just liked the pattern

                              Thank you everyone. I guess I just need to scroll more and have more patience with my abilities. You all are amazing...

                              How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                              The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                              I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                              Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                              If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                              Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
