Japanese Inspired Picture Frame Greene&Greene / Shou Sugi Ban.

01-15-2018 10:10 PM by Gbluee | 3 comments »

I worked for 22 years in the steel manufacturing sector. 11 of those years were for a trailer manufacturing company. When I left I asked them for a picture file they had of the whole crew of one of the biggest project I was involved in while working there.I decided to make a Greene&Greene mixed with Shou Sugi Ban for the finish.I also made a video of the build and it is on my You Tube Channel. I’ll leave a link to it below:

Making Wooden Model Plans #2: Using the plans to figure out the frame.

01-15-2018 09:00 PM by htl | 10 comments »

Now to use the the plans we printed out.First I print out the top pictures both front and back as again the printer is not wide enough to do it all at once.Then we have to figure out what in the picture is not needed to find our base or frame.The fenders and bumpers can all be cut away. Now how thick are the sides going to be? 1/4-3/8It would be nice to go thin but if you want a good glue joint and you want to do much shaping [rounding of the edges] it needs to be thicker.I’m going w...

Making Wooden Model Plans #1: Showing how I plan out a scratch built model

01-15-2018 07:00 PM by htl | 13 comments »

Planing a scratch build model car. After building Dutchy’s VW Bus [truck] I got it in my head to build the VW Thing which has all square side panels so should be a great first model build for those wanting to try wooden model building with limited tools..Having already build a Toys and Joys project or other models will be a plus as you will already have an understanding of how plans printed in full size can be used to build a model. I know there are artists that can draw their ow...

Desk Chairs #7: All Done - Except for Finishing

01-15-2018 02:37 PM by EarlS | 7 comments »

I might as well get another entry written this morning while I wait for the snow to stop falling. After sanding all of the front leg parts and the back leg parts with 220 grit paper, easing the edges, but not rounding them over, I glued everything up. The pieces went together easily as I have dry assembled them several times. There aren’t a lot of joints to glue on either leg assembly which was also a big help. Generally, I let things dry over night to make sure the glue is well se...

Joinery Bench #10: I have more planes than I thought...

01-15-2018 05:05 AM by Holbs | 1 comment »

I wanted to rehab a #7, #5 and #4 1/2 Stanley’s in preparation of dimensioning lumber starting this week. I was unsure what I had so pulled out every metal hand plane (not counting wooden planes or specialty planes) to check my inventory from all the auctions and garage sales I’ve been hitting for $5-$10 per lot. Hmm.. I think I’m set for volume of needed handplanes:

My Mobile Assembly/Outfeed Table and First Video

01-15-2018 04:11 AM by YesHaveSome | 2 comments »

I had always wanted to get into woodworking and video. For woodworking, space/time/money was always the big roadblocks for me. For video, I didnt really know have anything I wanted to shoot. When I got into woodworking in the beginning of 2017 I figured the two paired nicely. I’ve been in the website/digital industry for the past 10 years and also have a background as a CAD jockey. Woodworking, plans, video and website all seem to go together quite nicely so I figured I’d start a ...

A Dump Truck Adventure #6: Lights, feul tanks and mud gaurds

01-14-2018 07:51 PM by George_SA | 0 comments »

Lights made from 16mm dowel. The lights are stove bolts which fit just nicely on the dowel face. I drilled a center hole and screwed the stove bolts in. The lights will be attached to the truck with dowels. The fuel tanks. My original plan was to make round fuel tanks, but I decided that square fuel tanks would be easier to make. I cut slots on the tanks and inserted splines and then sanded them flush afterwards. (To achieve the same effect on a round tank would involve a glue up with t...

Cab floor and firewall Drilling the hole for the steering wheel at a 60 deg angle Steering Wheel Although the 60 deg angle for the steering wheel looked ok on my SketchUp plan, but a 45 deg Angle looked better in real life. I just reamed the hole a bit. As an after thought I also installed a dash. The seat The back wall I discovered an easy way to cut pieces to a specific length on my sled.I set the length with my square And then use the square as a setup guide for the cu...
