My little buddy next door, is now 14 months.....and was in need of a new toy. I chose cherry, originally was going to paint it, but it seemed a shame to do that. I have a new neighbor in the last year right across the street, and he has a nice laser and made me the license plates...I make him stuff with my tools he doesn't have and he is making me some stuff with his laser until I get one.
This is just Cherry with Antique oil. I have a friend that swears by Antique oil, but it doesn't seem very easy to get even, so the Jury is still out.
It only took me an afternoon to fabricate and a weekend to allow for coats and drying time.....After I gave it to him, he got right down on the floor and started driving.....the reward was in his face when he saw it.
