      Hello Everyone,

      I have a started a new engine build. It is a small block Chevy destined for a 32' Ford Deuce Coupe I plan to build in the next few months. It will be made mostly with wood and maybe some brass stock. Here is the start of the engine.



      I made an engine stand to display it on till the car is built.

    Here is today's update.

    Worked on the detailing of the block.

    I was going through an album I have of one of my cars. I had several really good reference photos that I could use. Wish I would have remembered these when I started the project. I was a mad documenter and took a picture at every stage of the build.

    Here is one of the pictures I am using for detail reference on the side of the block.



    I cutout the passenger side to mark the location for the freeze plugs and motor mount bosses.


    Driver Side


    I cutout some .020 thick pieces to form the casting Small Block Chevy 1/10th scale on the side of the block around the freeze plugs.


    Gluing Small Block Chevy 1/10th scale them on using the rubber band as a clamp and the dowel to line it up with the holes in the block.






    After some shaping and filing.





    Motor Mount bosses glued in. Need to be filed down

  4. Are you going to paint it, or leave it in wood-grain? I'd vote for leaving it natural

    I think it would be a shame to paint it. It is so different from what we typically see and the work is awesome, show the Mahogany!

    Thanks Guys. No paint here. Will be finished with a clear satin poly. I plan on building the Deuce with a Mahogany frame and suspension, Walnut tires, and Maple for the Body, wheels, and all the chrome parts.

    Thank you guys for the comments. Chronic I use hardwoods. Hard maple, Mahogany, Walnut, and Red oak. I buy it in the rough and mill it myself. I use normal size woodworking tools. I use alot of small files and xacto knife. I cutout my engine block on the bandsaw
