Got the wheels finished. Started on the base plate today. Looks more like a dragster than a pickup right now. You can see the 1 to 1.5 scaling in the first picture.

Starting to build the wheels. I am going to make the tires out of wood and paint them black. I was able to use two different hole saws to make the tires.

My next project is going to be a 1934 Ford Pickup. I purchased a plastic model to get all the details. It is too small so I am going to scale it up 50%. So one inch on the model will be 1.5 inches.

My first attempt at jewelry, a key fob with state of Texas quarter inlaid into it. It is real shiny now, but I am going to test it on my key ring to see how it holds up over time before I make more.
