        Very impressive.

            That is so great. I love the graining, but especially I love the door hinges-they are so tiny! And the knobs on the bumper, lol

              You have done yourself proud.

              I specially like the way you lined up the grain on the body panels.
              The fender lights came out nice.

              One constructive comment: the front wheel's whitewall makes it look like a target center... the proportions are off.
              The rear wheel is fine, it's just the front one.

              Otherwise, AWESOME job, well worth the time you have invested in it.

              DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

                            You should be PROUD of that piece, Trout. Perfect execution of that old rig turning a hard left! I think you cut it in Dale's shop - thats why yours is clean and his is a pigst....., er, not so clean

                                Improvisation is certainly acceptable, but some patterns are less forgiving than others. As someone else already said, learn to follow the lines as closely as possible. If you wander from the pattern lines, it is usually best if it is intentional. It takes some time and practice, so don't get too...

                                The lines matter if you are making a multi-layer project if you need things to line up, otherwise it's artist's interpretation.
