Here is a couple of versions of the Race Car that I did.  The painted one is made from Aspen and the solid wood one is made from Cherry, Walnut and Aspen.
Thanks for looking.

These look great.  I sent a post asking about your finishes, but I guess it did not go through.
What are the finishes on both cars, if you don't mind me asking.
I really like the wooden one.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks all for your kind words.  I've been scrolling for about 2 1/2 yrs now.  I think I'm finally getting the knack of it!  

Ken, Both cars are made from wood.  The painted one is all Aspen, the natural one is Walnut, Cherry and Aspen.

I use Shellac for my finish.  Shellac is common in a lot of food stuff.  Including a lot of pills that we take, notice the shine on a pill = Shellac.  I usually do a couple of coats of Shellac, sanding lightly in between with thin brown Painters paper from Home Depot.

Thanks all !!!!

Thanks for the info TommyT.
   Will have to give Shellac a try again, and will try sanding with the Painters paper.  Never heard of that before.  One good thing about Shellac is it dries fast.
