Anybody know what type of wood (Oak, Fir, Yellow Pine, etc) was used for the bed in stake bed trucks? I need to make a bed and sides for my truck.
Usually oak or other hard wood.
Pine! I recently had to disassemble a TT grain bed that had been damaged beyond repair. It was pine, not hard pine, just soft pine.
My 8in1 bed is all pine
Roadster pickups used Southern Yellow Pine. I would think that a TT would be the same. Dan
Thank you for your input
Grant, I’ve restored several TT stake beds and have kept a real nice original PINE board for a pattern. They were 7” wide and 1 1/4” thick. Then routed for the metal strips to fit
I think the beds were made out of recycled shipping crates..............
