I just finished the Woody Wagon and Trailer. I used Baltic Burch Plywood, Red Oak, and Pine. I finished the wood siding on the wagon and trailer with Watco Danish Oil in natural and painted the rest with acrylic paint.  I really enjoyed doing this project and currently working on the ’57 and trailer.  You guys have the best plans and have good assembly instructions.  I would highly recommend you to anyone.

Thanks for lookin’

Hi Bill
Nice job on the woody wagon and trailer.
I was surprised to see how much the yellow pops against the natural wood.  Looks good.
   I also like the little things, showing attention to detail.  Like the red axles and the red luggage.  
   Did you find any challenges with the plan set, that might help the rest of us when we are ready to build this set, and how long did it take to make it?
Thanks for sharing, and you did a really good job.

Thanks for posting Bill, everyone loves pictures. Nice work on your vehicle and trailor and I see a steering wheel in your wagon , I forgot to put it in mine and you did a good job on the grill cutout which stands out well.

Bill (wwalker47) - Nice work mixing natural wood with the painted parts. It looks just fantastic. Going to be hard letting this one leave the shop without some personal playtime on the workbench.

Hi Bill,
   I also built the woody with the camper and found one problem which I will change with my next one. I found the space to hook the camper onto the woody a bit cramped and I am sure that children might experience problems hooking the camper up.
I also built the 57 Chevvy and camper and did not find the hitching up to be a problem there.
I am impressed with your built. Very nice!
