"A man must keep a little back shop where he can be himself without reserve. In solitude alone can he know true freedom."
-Michel De Montaigne 1588

The Bodywork

Rather than using plywood, I decided to make the body from red oak. The boards are biscuit-jointed and glued.

Side pieces also had to be joined.

Fitting parts before gluing.

Front is on.

Tricky taper at the front spring support.

Complete body.

Bench seat.

Quick check to see if my butt fits....

After three coats of Sikkens Dark Oak stain, the body is installed on the chassis and it's ready to go for the inaugural run.


Some finishing touches. Fenders installed.

And a few accessories.

The finished(?) product.
