Building a replica of my Jeep

Started in on a new build today and I'm not sure if I have bitten off more than I can chew or not. I've started building a replica of my Jeep. Hopefully it will all go well. Didn't get too much done today, but at least I got something done.

No video for this one. Way too many factors and way too many hours to try and whittle down to a show.

He could carve a snow berm. If you need a picture, I'll take one, we've got more than we can handle here.

I hate signatures.

I don't mean to sound like a knuckle head but are you building a Jeep as in vehicle? Can't tell from the four pictures you have posted but maybe I am not seeing all that you posted since I am new to this site. If you are buildings a vehicle checkout mine in the gallery dated 1/29/2016. Woodknut

I already have the vehicle, now I'm building a miniature version of it out of wood. My builds usually take months a folks seem to enjoy them so I am posting this one on here. I hope you will join us for the build. It always looks like nothing at first and slowly comes together. By the way, those cars you built look awesome. Nicely done.

Well I was filming an episode of my show and working on another project today so I didn't get much done. I did get a little more of the underbody done though. The differentials are coming together nicely.

My Jeep is black so the replica will be mostly walnut. Not black I know, but close enough for me.

Played around in the shop today and didn't have any other projects to complete or work on so I got to dedicate the whole day to the Jeep build. Got some progress done and it looks like next week, I will be starting in on the interior of the rig. This is where the fun stuff starts with customizing everything to match my own vehicle. Should be a good one.
