Truck Box for a 1955 GMC pickup restoration

John Mordus, you might know his name from past Shop Notes posts, sent in 2 pictures of projects that have been added to a 1955 GMC pickup restoration project.

"Hunting buddy has been restoring a 1955 GMC pickup for probably going on 18 years now."

"The first pic is 2 oak stair treads glued together using your semi truck pattern. This was made a couple years ago. He dedicated it to his dad who started the business."

What a wonderful addition to the restoration, nice job!

"2nd pic is when it was rolled out of the garage almost done. Finished size is 15 x 8. I used the sign from Dad's Garage #1. Then pocketed a 5.53" x 3.53" oval. I cut a 5.5" x 3.5" oval out of 1/4" clear acrylic that snugs right in the pocket. It is also just the right size to cut a picture from a 4" x 6" print. Grabbed some fonts and done. Finished with Minwax golden oak stain and 4 coats of Minwax semi-gloss poly."

"This concept could be used for many many different themes I think."
