« Part 16: Trimmin' the wheels Part 17 of Constructing "Old 99" series Part 18: End of the line »

Last night I photocopied the side trim pieces for the tender and glued them to 1/16” maple and black walnut stock.


Then I cut the pieces for the side panels, back, side rack, back rack and the water tank. The side panels and back from 3/8” stock and the side and back rack from 1/4” stock. The water tank is a block 3 3/8” long X 2” wide and 2 1/4” high.


After laying out several lines I drilled two 7/8” by 1 1/4” deep.


I then cut and sanded the angles for the water tank.


I then drew layout lines for the corner cuts on the side panels and the side racks.


Glue and clamps; we are finished for today.
