Regular readers will recall my post from earlier in the year about Alaska-based seasonal hauler Christopher Vallee‘s budding woodworking biz — he’s taken on several commissioned projects to sculpt model tractor-trailers and other vehicles of late almost entirely from wood. The latest project, though, he’s planning to put up for auction on eBay when it’s finished. “Never built a cabover truck before,” he says. What do you think of it so far? More pictures follow in the gallery.
