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&...

06-18-2020 12:11 AM by htl | 2 comments »

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...

Wooden Models #279: fork lift Wheels and Muffler

05-15-2020 11:26 PM by htl | 5 comments »

Made up some wheel blanks today and off to the wheel jig tread maker. It makes it fast work when you can cut all the tires of the same size at one time.So only had to load the jig twice and it’s done. Also played with making a muffler and the back up warning light. I marked the dowel and using the drill table fence was able to slide the vice along the fence for in line holes.

05-12-2020 08:25 PM by htl | 4 comments »

This should be the last of the big stuff that needs made, other than the wheels. Really needed to pay attention with these forks or it could be put together back ward very easily. And all the way up smooth as you please. HTL over and out

Wooden Models #277: Fork lift Body work

05-07-2020 10:55 PM by htl | 1 comment »

Seat and steering wheel get a try out, If I knew what I know now I wouldn’t have glued on the front wall where the steering wheel is mounted till I was ready with the cage parts, it would have made the cage frame angles much easier to work with.. Then on to the cage and fenders. I’m really liking the way it’s turning out, had no idea how big it would be, but feels just right!!! #4 over and out!
