Hello to all. Here is my finished model of the Dracula Transylvania T.
I recently made the Frankenstein Hearse using 13 different types of wood so on the this one I tried to one-up it, and I did! I used 15 species!
In order to remember all of them, I wrote them on the underside of the roof, which swings up to allow Drac to get in and out of the buggy.
Here are the woods I used:
Ash
Bloodwood
Butternut
Aromatic Cedar
Cherry
Dogwood
Oak
Padauk
Palm
Poplar
Purpleheart
Spalted Maple
Swamp Ash
Walnut
Zebrawood

I did use some paint also, just to touch up the motor headers (gold) and the head and tail lights, otherwise the color was left as is.

Again, the plans were spot on, so kudos to John and his team of plan makers!

I hope you all like this.

Keep making sawdust!

You are an amazing artist with wood. This is at the top of our list for workmanship and creativity. Well done. We would love to see more of you on the forum. We have so much to learn from a master craftsman like yourself. Could you add a rear view photo when you have time?
