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...

Peter Bilt Trucks #2: And on to the next part of this make it as I go build!

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&...

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 #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...
