Re: EVan-Tricycle

Make your metal cage, hide it with thin veneer, and wood the outside as planned. My jeep is small with a metal cage - but they can roll over easy ..

Or --- make a frame of laminated Yew layers - bounces more than steel and is strong.. (my dad made longbows !!) He made a steam cabinet and bent wood onto all sorts of shapes and laminated layers.. tough and resilient.....
He made a boat of veneer frame and thin layers you could lift over your head and put a 40 HP mercury outboard on....
