Wooden Toy Car, Hot Rod Freak Ford, 32 Deuce Coupe, Orange & Black

This is the second car in the Halloween version of the Hot Rod Freaky Ford. The body is made from two layers of 3/4 inch MDF laminated together. In these cars I cut the MDF before gluing them up. I can't cut them well enough on a scrollsaw so there was lots of sanding involved to get the two halves to match. I can glue them and cut both at same time but with 1-1/2 inch thick material you have to cut very slow. I'm not sure yet which works best for me but I'm leaning toward the glue first method. Glue first makes getting the windows right much easier. Sanding inside the windows is quite difficult.

  1. It's interesting how you can work to build something and you have all these parts on the bench none of which you are real happy with but they are the best you can do. You go ahead and put all together and the result is greater than the sum of the parts.

    This little car has created quite a stir since I posted it in my usual places last night. I know I got over 100 messages today about this toy. Not exactly viral but its a lot more activity than I'm used to. I picked up some followers and a couple of new Facebook friends that are toy makers. I sent one of them here and he bought the Freaky Ford plans.
