This thread seems to have died, so I'll bring it back up with an item I use in fabrication. Robbed from my pile of firewood a few years back. I beat on metal on it, hang hammer from it and if nothing else sit on it. Got cheap HF casters so I can roll it around.

Looks like nice hardwood! Next time I'm back east I need to pick up some. Pine and cottonwood aren't much good.

Yeah, softwoods don't work too well when you're trying to whip a shape into a piece of metal. I'd send you a nice big chunk out, but they are darn heavy.

Drew, what did you use to hollow out the center? Circular saw?
I need to make one...

I've got one of those attachments that fits my 4 1/2" grinder that basically is a circular chain saw blade. It makes really quick work at carving out the hollow area. Really have to be careful with it as I suspect it would remove a finger before you know what happened.



I have used a circular saw on some of my other stumps to create the hollow area.

After I get the hollow shape, I use a DA to fine tune it and smooth it up.

To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure what the one in the picture is. This particular one just happens to have some nice visual effects to go along with it's utility. I usually replace them every so often due to the cracks and splits that occur in them. I keep a fairly heavy coat of tung oil on them to slow down the effects of a very dry shop on a piece of wood that is not dry. The one I have now has been around for about 3 years and cracking has been minimal.

Sooooo......when are you going to fabricate something?????

Kidding...I've been tracking your build on different forums for some time. You've laid hands on about every square inch of that truck. Nice work!!

I think the only Stock parts on this build are the front fenders. As much as I love fabrication it's great to be on the downhill side of the build. I will be finished this summer and I will start a Built thread here after it is finished. This has been a labor intensive project as I'm sure you know what that means. We (FTE's) love our trucks and it shows in what we do. I'm on a few forums but this one is by far the BEST.

I did this rear bumper last year. I used the profile of the front bumper, even though it is mitered and not curved.





I finished it off with some LED tail lights and black powder coating.
