1930 Duesenberg Car Made Out Of White Ash And Walnut
I like to make wooden antique cars and recently completed this 1930 Duesenberg car out of white ash and walnut. It measures 19 in. long by 6 1/2 in. wide. The wheels are made from walnut and have spokes made from round tooth picks, with basswood used for the sidewalls.
    The old-time gas pump is made of cherry burl wood. My dad used to have one of these pumps on our farm when I was a kid. The operator used to hand pump gas out of a big underground tank and up into a 5-gal. glass container located on top of the pump. From there the gas gravity flowed down to the car.
