Etsy Listing - Wooden Toy Car - Hot Rod Freaky Ford - 27 T Coupe

This is the best one of this series I have made so far. There are few things that could be improved on using the materials I had available.

If you look close you can see a few spots where there is some tear out that could not be fixed without sanding away enough of the wood to change the look of the car. Working with pine 2x4s  is a mixed blessing. They are dirt cheap but are really hard to work with. I've thrown away more than a few bodies because the tear out was so bad that the toy part wasn't useable.

On the front there is a spot where some shellac dripped. I did not see this until I was processing the photos. It could have been fixed but it's to late now.

There are a few places that could be a little smoother. Again these were not visible to me until the photos were done. I'm not sure I would have done anything to improve them. To produce a glassy smooth surface on the pine I'm using would require an enormous amount of work. If you want to see all you defects get some good lights and do a a photo shoot.

The rest of the photos are here.
