    My rough Jeep build

    Been working on a new wooden toy Jeep.
    It's in the very early stages and pretty rough looking but It will come around to look pretty good.
    Here's what I have so far.

    That's really cool. I can't work with wood to save my life. I do ok with metal. I've been thinking of setting up a piece of sheet metal in the mill and milling out a grill and headlights. Maybe building a box around it and putting a light inside.

    They both look great and fun. Kevin your tub looks like it shifted on the frame and at full articulation you tires will rub the back of the wheel wells.

    Oh mine is going to be looking good when I get the pattern all made up.
    Would this competition be Jeeps that children can play with or like a static model?

    Could be for any thing, kids to play with ,decorative with perhaps some kind of function. I was thinking of makeing one about 2 feet long to serve as a flower pot, but also have lights in the headlights to serve as a night light on the porch, maybe put little red lights in the back for tail lights. Maybe have it hooked up with an electric eye so that it moved a little when someone got close to it.
