Scroll Saw Magic Wacky Dracula Hearse

Here is my finished piece of the Wacky Frankenstein Hearse.
What I tried to do here was use as many type of woods as possible in the making of this model.
I was able to find and use 13 different species and in order to remember all the types, I wrote them on the bottom of the casket located inside the back.
The types I used were:
Bloodwood
Cherry
Dogwood
Holly
Mahoghany
Maple
Oak
Palm
Swamp Ash
Tigerwood
Walnut
Wenge
Yellowheart

The wheels were purchased and baked in my oven to get them this darker color.

This was loads of fun to make and the plans were spot on.

I hope you all like it.
Keep making sawdust!

This is a beautiful toy. The baking technique has added a lot of interesting detail and highlights. We would love to see inside your shop and start learning from you. Please consider sharing some step by step photos on your next projects. What is the clear finish you are using. Are there several coats with sanding between coats? What grit sandpaper are you using for preparing for the clear coats?

Another great car again with a good selection of woods that work together. I like the idea of writing the wood types down somewhere on the car.
