Default Car Rocker

This was the last rocker that I made, there may be one more but that is in the planning stage at the moment.

Anyway this one I made for someone else and they chose the colours. I may have started this a bit on the foolish side as I did not have any plans but I did take some photo's of a car which was a convertible. So it is loosely based on a MG midget car.
This time made from plywood and the recipients where very happy with the results.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

Dang, thats nice,Derek. You sure do nice work. Like Stick says, Premium workmanship. I don't think I would have the patience to pay that much attention to detail. And your finishing talents are superb.
