Running board

Hey JB nice job, and nice truck. I wonder if you could snap a pic of the
running board and where it meets the fender because I have a brand new
genuine Ford my father bought back then. I know it is NOT for 1948 & up.
Its not a pickup either like a 1 1/2 ton like yours I'll give it to ya.

That looks great. I was up at the family farm this weekend and went around looking for old wood. There is some really great stuff up there. I was talking about using some of the wood to make my all wood flatbed and my wife and mother in law looked at me like I was crazy. They just don't get it.

I need to get back up there and pull wood out of the hiding holes. I will need to take some pictures and get some advice from you wood experts. My nephew also showed me an approximately 4' by 8' board. It was cut using a 1929 Cat 60 driving the sawmill. My nephew wants to make a table out of it someday. It's been drying in the barn tacked up against a wall to keep it straight for a good 15 years or so.

Truck looks great, nice job!

I'm curious to see how the diamond plate looks on there...

Great work on the bed and headboard GB. That truck now has just the right patina to make it worth big money.

Your comment about Thompson's Waterseal is interesting. I wonder if the thicker formula will make it last longer? I only got a few years out of it when I used it on concrete.

Thanks guys! It's been a usual Monday at Mt. Pickett Woodworking. It's about 8 pm and I still have my son and his buddy resawing old fence boards for yuppie siding. Of course they don't show up 'til noon . They're using an 18" bandsaw that came from a WW 2 shipyard, but with ba modern motor. (Kinda like a lot of our trucks). I snuck over to a buddy's place for some diamond plate and now might do it in one long piece. I got some pics that I can post later tonight.

Hey Gary,
You post the best pics - love your fleet of old trucks. I like being able to see the saw marks in the wood in that close up pic. I think you also posted the best video I've ever seen on here! It was an old Powerwagon (?)lumbering up a steep hill - fantastic.

That was the '51 6x6 powerwagon with a hemi I bought last August and sold three days later. I could only afford to drive it for 3 days! For the last 27 years I Have attended the Puget Sound Antique Tractor and Machinery Association's show at Lynden, Wa. I took the dodge there and sold it for a 2500.00 profit, and I kept the 12,000 lb warn winch that was on the rear. Once I reached the island on my return I stopped at a guy's place who was selling a 1980 scout with a factory nissan 6 cyl turbo diesel. I remember when he bought new, and have coveted it since. It now has 74,000 miles. He had been asking 3500.00, but he took the 2500.00 I had in my pocket. One of my better transactions..... But now, as usual I'm hijacking my own thread. OK, I have some pics of the original subject.
