Model Build #2 : The Hummer #6: Details And Bringing It Together!

04-16-2019 06:01 PM by Jason1974 | 12 comments »

This is my favorite part of the build! The Details… I have been thinking about how I wanted to do the detail on the dash. I think I did a pretty good job. It’s amazing to much things slow down when you are getting to the end of the build. It’s also the scariest hoping everything fits together and looks good. ....................................Thanks For Watching!!!

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #4: Side & Back Panels

04-12-2019 11:24 AM by Jason1974 | 10 comments »

Here’s another update for you guys. I used a 1/16” straight router bit for the kerfs and I made a template for making the kerfs for the doors and windows. I am going to put the gas cap in a different location. I want my model to have different features than T&J’s.........................Thanks for watching!

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #3: The Seats

04-10-2019 11:16 AM by Jason1974 | 11 comments »

Here is my version of the seats for the Hummer. Instead of making it out of one piece of wood, I divided it into 4 sections and placed a 1/8” roundover on the sides and glued them back together. The seats are made out of Walnut. I got the idea from the seats from Dutchy’s Buick build. I like that design in the seats.........................Thanks for watching!

50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 #13: Walnut rattle

04-09-2019 03:29 PM by mnguy | 2 comments »

ANOTHER rattle, for a coworker just coming back from maternity leave. Walnut with maple veneer between the handle and end caps. Does anyone have a suggestion for gripping one fully turned end of this form so I can properly shape and finish the second end? I thought it might fit a set of chuck jaws, but none of the jaws I have fit. I might have to make something, as I see more rattles in my future, and it gets frustrating to have one nicely shaped and sanded end, and one janky end that trie...

Morris style glider #18: Done!

03-14-2019 01:25 PM by Ryan Tanguay | 2 comments »

Finally finished! My wife helped make the cushions, which really add to the comfort! Wasn’t the best chair to sit in without them. I have been enjoying rocking in it and hope to for years to come. Feels so good to have it finally done after nearly 5 years…

Walnut Dining Table #5: Glue-up and test finishes

03-11-2019 12:20 AM by b1v1r | 2 comments »

And now for the more stressful part of this build, the glue-up. No matter how much I seem to prepare for a glue-up, I always seem to nearly run out of time, but I was not as worried with this as I have assembled dry many times. From the plans, the recommended way to assemble this is to glue-up the base parts, then glue the base to the legs and arms. I was a bit worried that gluing up the base alone would leave the base tenons slightly misaligned with the mortises in the leg and arm, so I opte...

Walnut Dining Table #4: Arms, part layout, and a full dry assembly

03-08-2019 12:30 AM by b1v1r | 3 comments »

I’m in the home stretch on this table. Today I’ll show the arms with tapers and counter-sunk holes for attaching the top and then move on to the full dry assembly. I did not get any good pictures of the process in shaping the arms for the base, but it was pretty straight forward. The arms were rough tapered on the bandsaw and then I use a hand plane and card scrapers to finish them off. I then drilled counter sunk holes with a 1/2” forstner bit leaving 1” of remaini...

Morris style glider #17: Finally finishing!!

03-03-2019 02:16 AM by Ryan Tanguay | 1 comment »

Whew!4.5 years since the start and I can finally start to bring out that beautiful wood grain! Have everything sanded to 220 and all the parts that can be disassembled laid out and cleaned off. Started with all the parts upside down to apply the “under” parts first. Once dry, I will flip over. Rinse, repeat. I went with danish oil as a finish. I am familiar with it and is hard to mess up. I also wanted to go with a finish that was protective, but didn’t leave the surfa...

Morris style glider #16: Glider mechanism

03-03-2019 02:05 AM by Ryan Tanguay | 0 comments »

Working out the kinks of the glider mechanism. Purchased a hardware kit from Platte River Engineering for the glider part. It came with diagrams and instructions on how to make the wooden parts. I adjusted some of the parts to work with the dimensions of my chair as well as the integration into my chair. Didn’t realize until I got to this point that the instructions aren’t as clear as I would have liked them to be. Come to find out that certain assemblies in the glider base are...
