Willy’s jeep #8: Ta-da. I don’t know what else I can do. Je suis complète

08-04-2019 10:40 PM by FrenchGoattoys | 1 comment »

So, finally, I am done. I had several goals in mind when I started this project. The first was to build a Jeep and give it color and parts that provided a worn look. Second, was to interject different mediums to add a hint of detail without losing the overall wood appearance. I am certain there are pure of heart wood modelers who are cringing at the sight and cursing my name. But what the heck, I haven’t been much for boxes; they clutter my shop. Third, I wanted to make some functional parts...

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!!!

Salvaged lumber table top #2: More salvaged lumber...from underwater

04-16-2019 02:23 AM by RBurke83 | 10 comments »

I saw this large piece of wood with obvious signs of being worked protruding from the stream bank behind my house about two years ago during a dry spell and had plans to remove it. No high hopes being that it has been submerged since who knows when. I finally got around to it yesterday and came to the conclusion that it would have to be cut to get it out. The bad news is, like an idiot I cut it into uneven lengths, sawing blind underwater with my pruning saw. The good news is that the wa...

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!

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #2: The Fenders

04-06-2019 11:39 AM by Jason1974 | 8 comments »

Well gents, here is my progress so far. The fenders were not to bad to make. getting the grooves cut out for the headlights was a pain in the butt considering I suck at using a chisel. I used my disc sander to make everything straight and flush before I made the rounded curve on the top of the fender. Now off to the next part. ...........................THANKS FOR WATCHING!!!

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!!!.

The Box-From-A-Block Jig

02-04-2019 07:16 AM by Matt Snyder | 6 comments »

This is a jig I made that allows me to make a small box from any size block of wood (within reason). The appropriately sized frame pieces mount to the walnut sliders and the whole jig mounts to my router table. I was able to route out 13 blocks in less than 20 minutes. I decided to use the live edge slab from chainsaw milling the walnut I used for the sliders. That scrap slab had some cool spalting in it. Here’s a YouTube video of the build. I hope you enjo...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #98: Best Edge Banding Around!

12-16-2018 08:01 PM by technoslick | 4 comments »

Before heading out to the Big Box Store, I checked to see if they had the 3/4” wide red oak edge banding I needed to finish the daughter’s two dog bowl holders. Look what I found: Yep. You read the description right: 3/4” thick, 6” wide, 25’ long. Heh. Here we wrap our oak planks into rolls. ;)
