Part 1: Chassis

03-10-2015 08:53 PM by Dutchy | 8 comments »

I started building a wooden combine. Below a set of pictures of the building proces of the chassis. I made this chassis out of 6 pieces. On the construction drawing it is one piece. I like to use more pieces. I have no pretensions to say that this is the right way, It is only my way. It is quite possible making the chassis out of one piece. Thanks for watching

Part 6: Glue test (second attempt)

03-23-2015 09:33 PM by Dutchy | 5 comments »
