F-1504.jpg  F-1503.jpg  F-1502.jpg  F-1501.jpgHere is my take on the Ford F150 truck. As I don't paint my toys and these are for kids to play with, I make them colorful by using lots of different woods. The side panels are dark mahogony over a lighter mahogony, yellowheart for the hood and top, oak in the truck bed and tail gate, cherry for the frame, leopard wood for the grill, walnut for the splash guards, purple heart for the seats, wenge for door handles and zebra wood for the bumpers. For the tail light, I put in paduak and in the headlights, I put in maple. You can't really tell from the pictures, but the seats have routed cushion details and the truck bed was routed to simulate the ridges in truckbeds.

Very Impressive and skillful work, all the woods blend together to show great features of your build. How's YellowHeart to work with, I've been wanting to try some on this type of project?

This is great, I love all the different timbers. Especially the Leopard wood grill, I have never seen or heard of this species before.
Thanks for sharing

Cheers

Very nice.  I like the natural wood much better too.  You sure do have many wood choices in thin stock, very lucky (maybe you cut it down yourself).

What a beautiful truck! Very neatly done with a lovely finish! I love the contrasting woods which really stands out. I do not like to paint my toys and prefer the natural wood colours.

Well done!

Regards

All I gotta say is Wow! Mine is under construction as we speak, but it will be painted black with a grey interior. I'm trying to figure out in my head how that is going to work. How is the connection between the roof and the sides holding up?
