Hot Rod FORDS #14: The Lockdown continues BUT Christmas isn’t too far away so it’s Fund Raising gift donations time.

The Lockdown continues BUT Christmas isn’t too far away so it’s Fund Raising gift donations time. My wife suggested a couple of Matchbox Toy Car Garages I’ve made about 30 of these over the years developing my own plan, so I’m happy to share it anyone who’d like to build one or a few. The livery I’ve chosen is an old icon Aussie Service Station of days gone by; Golden Fleece. The Golden Fleece decals are just paper print outs off the internet. Most children seem to like the mov...

Amazing wood carvinggift from a dear friend A gift that needed a proper post, in my gift from friend blog series. (Don’t really know why I did not post it here in the first place). This summer my dear friend Andy (LJ Brit), were supposed to come and visit me in Copenhagen, we had a plan about spending time in my workshop and take a road trip to my allotment house also, but Covid-19 stopped our plans for now. I’m hoping the vaccines will soon make it possible to travel again,...

Peter Bilt Trucks #1: One mean looking PanTech is started!

08-07-2020 06:16 AM by crowie | 4 comments »

One mean looking PanTech is started! I firstly started with a engine and cabin on a chassis… It looks okay well a good start! Take the roof off to reveal the insides! And it even has a gearshift and a steering wheel for Aussie roads. Now to cut out and glue up the back…. Used most of my clamps to get that done! WOW! It looks big! And the back doors worked out well… The top of the PanTech Box or lid was tricky for...

Gift Projects #2: Making Cutting Boards Out Of a Single Peice of Solid Wood

05-17-2018 06:05 PM by ScottBelleri | 0 comments »

I made these paddle-style cutting boards out of solid 6/4” maple. This is thick enough that they shouldn’t warp, and they can be sanded down a number of times. It is called a paddle-style cutting board because its handle makes it look a bit like a paddle. The handle makes it easy to carry and hang, and also gives it a unique character. Sugar maple is an ideal wood for cutting boards because it is hard, but not so hard that it will dull your knives. Really, the only import...

Christmas Gifts #3: Finished Toy Machine Shed! Christmas 2017

12-26-2017 09:44 PM by HandyHousewife | 3 comments »

Whew! We made it, just in the nick of time! 10 minutes to midnight on Christmas Eve we put the last touchup paint on it in preparation for the big day. Spoiler: The boy LOVED it! :-) Details: Roof and floor: 1/4” plywood Trim: 1/4” thick poplar that I sawed strips about the thickness of a popsicle stick with the bandsaw and glued on. Walls: 1/2” thick plywood. 5 tiny hinges for the roof, wish they were white, but too lazy and not enough time to paint them. ...

Santa's helpers and other elves.

Things have gotten crazy here, but this is normal for the Christmas season. First we get the big projects that must be done before the holiday entertainment happens. (2 bathrooms, 5 kitchen modifications, 2 dining-room tables and repair a set of chairs) Next we have the special Christmas gifts, (a cane, a walking stick, a doll bed, 2 closets modified, a custom bench seat, and they keep coming in) Then there are the things my wife has asked me to make, (spoons, cutting boards, pen and...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #2: Preparing The Stock

11-29-2016 03:13 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Since I just so happen to have the exact bible on hand that I plan to give, I took some quick measurements and estimated the box size. The final dimensions should be 10” long by 7” wide and 2 3/4” tall. I started out by cutting down the lumber to approximately 11” strips and ripped them to 3” long. The picture in the previous posting was what I started with and the picture below is the near end result of the pieces. My planer has brand new blades in it and ...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #1: Starting Out

11-29-2016 02:47 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Being my first project on here and my woodworking skills are rather limited, bare with me as I post bits and pieces and try to make sense of it for you all. Christmas is coming upon us quickly and as usual, I am in a rush to figure out gifts for the family. Being a holiday that society forgot the real meaning of… my wife and I decided to give the family a Scofield Study Bible to help reinstate the true purpose of the day. Of course, no worthy book is complete without a proper cont...
