Every good FORD has a big V8 engine and here’s mine… BUT first a huge THANK YOU to Bruce, aka “htl” for his valuable assistance in helping me get this build off the ground with extra photos, drawings and encouragement… This is my first attempt at both a “blog” and a build project like this… I’ve watched, been inspired and encouraged by so many top toy & model makers on LJ’s, I’ve been challe...

Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

03-18-2012 10:53 PM by KoryK | 41 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

Shop Tools #12: Hmmmm. What is it?

06-17-2011 12:03 AM by WayneC | 26 comments »

I bought this off of ebay this week. It was listed as a small plane, but it looks like a toy, model or perhaps some form of box. I would not see a purpose for the lid if it was a toy or model. I bought it because it was unusual. It has a hinged lid. The blade and wedge appear to be decorative. The patina appears to be real indicating it is quite old. The horn has tool marks which to me indicate it was carved. Here is a view inside. The hole appears hand cut with tool marks evide...

"Automaton" #6: It's .........Aliveeeee!!!!!!!

01-18-2012 06:37 AM by mpounders | 21 comments »

It works! That doesn’t always happen, for me! I still have a little tweaking to do on one cam, but this is pretty much how it will operate. I’ll be able to start on the painting and finishing next, which shouldn’t be too bad. Of course, one of the things that slows me down, is all the “testing” I just have to do! So, as a thank you to those that have followed my blog, I decided to post a little preview of it in action. Thanks for eeveryone’s encourag...

FOUND IT! (Anyone remember a miniature bench plane for executives?)

12-31-2018 02:40 AM by Dave Rutan | 20 comments »

[See my comment below] A long tme ago, like maybe in the 1980’s or 90’s, I remember seeing a miniature bench plane and work bench for executives. The idea was that you could plane a miniature piece of wood on your desk to relieve stress, much like a mini zen garden. I think it was offered by a catalog like The Sharper Image or Brookstone, but I can find nothing about it on the internet. I’m just curious about it and would like to see the add for it. Knowing what I ...

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #1: The Chassis

03-25-2019 12:09 AM by Jason1974 | 18 comments »

Gents, so I decided to start another project. I had a huge chuck of cherry on my wood carts so I decided to mill it down and make something with it. Haven’t decided what other woods to use but I think I’m going to make the wheels out of walnut for the tyres and maple for the rims. I also have a small chunk of bloodwood I would like to incorporate into the build. Maybe I’ll use it for the seats. ............. Thanks for watching!!!.

Toy Construction #256: Reading Passenger Car Gatto Plan

05-27-2019 07:16 PM by htl | 18 comments »

Got started on the Gatto passenger car that should fill out that train set.I built the Reading train a while back and then bought the Gatto plan set that goes along with it for the cars.This is Plan#29I almost didn’t build it because it’s so long and with the other cars and Train will really be a long one for sure.As you can see in the picture I clamped down a board to the edge of the table so as I glued up the sides I could add some pressure as the super glue kicked in.Not shown ...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

04-11-2012 01:20 AM by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

Savannah's Horse Barn for Christmas

12-17-2008 05:16 AM by Karson | 17 comments »

My youngest daughter was very much into horses when she was at home. We had 14 Acres in New Jersey and probably had horses for around 15 years or so. After High School was over the horses disappeared and the horse barn became a lumber storeroom. She got married and about 6 month ago her in-laws gave her some riding lessons as a birthday gift. The horse fever caught on again. This time she has a young daughter. For some reason girls and horses seem to go together. Missy sometimes takes S...
