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 #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 #274: Wheels for the skidder

10-22-2019 03:50 AM by htl | 11 comments »

Here’s my first try at some tractor wheels for the skidder. First need to get some blanks ready. Tip As you get started on the treads always mark the first tread that way you can be sure to line these marks up so the treads always line up even if your indexer isn’t perfect. Still got a ton a clean up to do but you get the idea. #4 over and out.

Wooden Models #268: Scratch build Steam Train wheels

08-27-2019 07:23 PM by htl | 8 comments »

Got a little more done. Found out my tread making jig also does a pretty good job at making spoke wheels, sure saves a lot a time I would have to be drawing all the points needed to drill. Just add a blank and drill, once the jig is centered to the bit. The indexer is set up for cutting 36 treads but as you can see I have it marked for every other hole or as I did this time every third hole. As you can see the backer plate gets pretty chewed up when making the different sizes...

Wooden Models #267: Scratch build Steam Train

08-23-2019 11:07 PM by htl | 10 comments »

This will be a scratch built Steam train in the style of the 1860’s or there about.Something like this. Here’s where I got to today.I have three partial days in it, one of those spit and sputter builds. I have the plans for both Toys and Joys trains but wanted it to have a longer look to the boiler.I have built both the wood and coal T&J’s Trains.Started with the frame.The back is 3/4” and went back and thinned the front part down to 1/2”, I used dowels...

Wooden Models #265: 32 Hot Rod Chevy Coupe Fenders & radiator installed

08-09-2019 07:59 PM by htl | 7 comments »

This fir sure make sanding quick but the dings it gets are a pain! Going to have some really wide tires on the back so needed to cut some more out.These quality hole saws make quick,clean work of it with very little sanding a big plus in my book.. Then need to figure how the radiator will fit in, really took my time with this as any part of it buggered up would mean tons a redoes. :-[ It’s coming together now. #4 over and out.
