10-20-2020 09:41 PM by htl | 4 comments »

Don’t hate me Dutchy but I just didn’t have the gumption to drill all them dowels to make hand rails so I’m calling my seats upholstered hand railed seats. LOL Got all done for the lower section so buttomed the thing up. :-}}} There doesn’t seem to be as much to be done to the up stairs so maybe it will go a little easier, I hope.I have all the parts cut out just got to fiddle with it and get er done.

Scroll saw projects #1: Wooden Pad lock #2

09-08-2020 11:53 PM by htl | 10 comments »

Looking for another project for the scroll saw and found an interesting lock to make.Here’s what got my attention. I figured out a size I liked and then printed out some copy’s and tried to come up with something that would work. I had built one before so still had the plans I had used for the insides just had to move them around to fit the shape I’m using this time. I tried to keep the body and arm as close as possible so there wouldn’t be to much space showi...

Trucks #15: Making spoke wheels

08-18-2020 10:20 PM by htl | 14 comments »

It’s time to get started on the spoke wheels so I’ll know how the fenders will need to be. I found some dowels about twice the size of tooth picks at wally world, really like the size but the drill bits I’ve got to work with it seem to have a mind of their own.Come to think about it now I haven’t switched out bits in quite some time so will be digging out the drill set next time I’m in the shop. I really didn’t want to use maple again but already have...

After building the Toys And Joys Heavy Duty Trailer it’s time to make a semi to match.It’s hard for me to take good pictures of the whole thing, these last projects are just way big.Not going to get fancy with the bottom this time and stay pretty close to the plans. Will be using cherry and maple to match the trailer. Great start to a fine finish. LOLHTL over and out

Trucks #4: Got the trailer wheels under control

06-12-2020 08:22 PM by htl | 2 comments »

Finished up the trailer wheels and will save the semi wheels for when I build the truck.I took me more time to make these rims than to make the tires and there’s twice as many tires as the rims just need to be on the out side looking pretty. Drilling out the spokes for the rims. Drilling for the lug nuts. Different jig but same steps gets the lug nuts drilled.I just used every fourth hole to get my spacing, got to love jigs, once set up just ...

Trucks #3: Figuring out the wheels

06-10-2020 09:13 PM by htl | 6 comments »

Worked on gluing up and then cutting out the wheel blanks yesterday and shaped the out sides. Twenty five of them. Then today I cut out the treads.First cut out the treads on the tread cutting jig. Had to load the jig 4 times to get er done. Then needed to set up the table saw fence for cutting the treads in the other direction.It takes some time playing around with the fence to get just the right spacing for the treads.I would have loved adding one more groove but didn’t ...

Trucks #1: LowBoy Heavy Duty Trailer

06-05-2020 07:46 PM by htl | 2 comments »

I just love making low boy trailers and being able to put my models on them, No I am not playing with my models. LOL Getting started, Needed a pop can for size picture. Gluing up a slab, I clamp a board down so I can glue up the parts one at a time and hold them in place with hand pressureIt’s 1/4” thick so clamps would just be a pain and get in the way. #4 over and out.

Wooden Models #285: Indy Car Scratch build Fair weather tires

05-29-2020 09:21 PM by htl | 2 comments »

I was told my knobby tires just wouldn’t do so today I made the tires I should have made to start with but just wasn’t sure if this car was going to be worth the extra effort. So here’s my step by step for making the fair weather tires or slicks.Scraps of walnut, now I know why I’ve been saving all those useless chunks a wood. My 2” hole saw makes quick work for the shape, see how I drilled the holes right at the edge of the wood so the saw dust could g...

Wooden Models #282: Indy Car Scratch build #2

05-25-2020 07:45 PM by htl | 5 comments »

Getting the feel of how it needs to be. These parts will be glued one on top of the other so need to have the parts shaped and sanded before they are added. I usually don’t build models this way but seemed like it will work for this small a project. Got the back end figured out.If I knew what I know now I would have had the rear end as part of the frame parts it would have come out much cleaner looking. Next up need to play a round with the front. This...
