I was able to finish my trailer and Pickup truck yesterday.  This is a 1950-ish Pickup truck and horse trailer I made using mostly MDF from Home Depot. The bails of straw are 1 1/2 x 1/12 block of wood covered in shredded yellow paper then spray glued to the wood.

A long list of different wood types were used, mostly from my scrap pile.

MDF, Maple, Aspen, Walnut, Cherry, Pine and cedar.  It helped clean up that scrap pile some!

Wow, nice looking project.
I like the way you used wood for the doors and the trailer windows, and painted most everything else.
   I am glad you told how you made the bails of straw, because as I looked at the photos, that was going to be my first question.  Thanks for letting us in on your little secret.
   I like what you did with this project.  Makes me want to get the pattern out and start cutting.
Thanks for sharing your photos.

TommyT - Really sharp looking project. Great work on the truck and trailer. Straw bails are a nice touch and thanks for posting how you made them.
Can I talk you into doing a Forum post on the steps you took to make them. I think the members would really like to see the process as well as I. Thanks.
