Hot Rod FORDS #15: I need to be busy in the shed making a special toy vehicle

09-30-2021 09:53 PM by crowie | 42 comments »

G’day LumberJocks Friends. I need to be busy in the shed making a special toy vehicle. Our youngest grandson Asher now 3yrs 8mths had a 9hr heart surgery yesterday upgrading the fancy plumbing they put in to allow his half a heart to cover his whole bodies needs when he was 3mths old. He’s such a blessing doing very well in PICU today. Yesterday was a long day for the whole family with Healing Prayers for Asher from across the world. My wife is staying with our daughter, son-in-law and grandd...

Hot Rod FORDS #13: Hot Rod Ford Truck.

08-08-2021 04:47 AM by crowie | 40 comments »

Hot Rod Ford Truck. Well we have started week 7 of the “Stay at Home” lockdown isolation with at least another 3 weeks to go according to current advise. So in order to keep sane I thought I’d start a new toy build. So far the T-Bucket/C Cab is shaped out along with the engine & radiator. The wheels and front mudguards/fenders have been started. The chassis rails will be about 18” or 450mm. It’s all about making it up as I go.

I have been looking for a project to build and saw that Toys and Joys have come out with some new plans, and the 146 – “THE UNIMOG” got my attention.So before biting the bullet and sending for the plans I went walk about seeing what ideas I could add to it, as you all know I can’t stay to close to the plans for some reason.Well searching for Unimogs I found one that really got my attention, now wouldn’t that be fun to go mudding in?And as you can tell, it’s...

Wooden Models #290: We got 5 wheels

04-25-2021 09:44 PM by htl | 6 comments »

When I got to this point It hit me I could add some spokes between what I already have and come up with something a little different. So here was my testing on a buggered up rim.Looks to me like it just might work? I got 4 drilled up and tooth picks added Friday and just had to call it a day couldn’t look at another spoke. lolToday I went out and was working on the last wheel and my wife comes out and I show her what I’m up to and she says, WHY DO YOU PUT YOU...

Journey into Woodturning #18: Black Walnut Candle Holders

09-29-2020 02:01 PM by MovingChips | 1 comment »

Black walnut is a great wood to work with. It cuts so nicely, sands well and finishes great. So, I couldn’t resist getting my hands on these two 4×4x6 pieces of black walnut to attempt turning a pair of candle stick holders. This was a great project and I had a lot of fun with the challenges. The difficulty being a duplication of one holder to the other, without using calipers. The end result turned out fantastic and here is what I learned. I think in the future I would rather a 4...

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...

08-08-2020 06:53 AM by crowie | 6 comments »

And on to the next part of this make it as I go build! The rear axle can be screwed in place as the box will cover the screws. Two tone on the fuel takes make it look like straps. Double check the fitment of the lid. A couple of exhaust stacks. Fitting and strengthening the cabin roof with a couple of axle pegs through the “A” pillows.Air horns on the roof too….just shortened golf tees.. A rear bumper bar with taillights and an a...

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...

Toys & Models #1: School Bus Part 1

07-08-2020 03:45 PM by sras | 17 comments »

I haven’t done a real time blog in a long time. Time to do one. I’m using my phone for pictures for the first time so we’ll see how that goes… I’m bulding a pair of school buses for grandkids birthdays. The first one starts school this fall. The second one will be given in 2 years. I started with a set of plans from Toys & Joys . The first thing I did was redraw it at half size. After getting the wood cut to the various thicknesses (3/4”, 3/8&...
