Wheels are done. I glued up the sleeper and engine block. Used purpleheart and pine. The block has the firewall attached.The purpleheart bleed into the pine. I will use tape to cover the purpleheart and lightly sand the pine to clean it up. Was this from the resins? That is it for this weekend back to work in the morning.

Building the Infill Shooting Plane #6: Mouth to Mouth

07-25-2016 01:04 AM by JayT | 6 comments »

With the body rabbeted out to accept the side plate, it’s time to cut the actual mouth. If you haven’t yet, now would be a good time to cut the metal pieces to final length. Since the O1 hasn’t been hardened, it cuts pretty easily. I did the first two planes with just a hacksaw. For this one, I used a hacksaw on the 3/8 and a jigsaw on the 1/8. Lay the piece of 1/8 steel on the bench and the wood blank on top and tightly nestled in the rabbet. I hope your wood blan...

Building the Infill Shooting Plane #5: Start some Body Shaping

07-24-2016 11:10 PM by JayT | 0 comments »

With everything ready for the frog to be installed, it’s time to start adjusting to some final dimensions. First thing is body depth. If your blank started at 1-3/4, you should be close to the correct depth, as most transitional bodies are 1-1/2 thick and there is about 1/4in of cast iron frame on top of that. Here’s the best way I’ve found check thickness. Adjust the depth adjuster knob to about 1/2 way from front to back and set the frog on the body. With the iron...

Carving a Life Size Statue #3: Large glue up, transfer lines,starting to Carve

07-24-2016 10:32 PM by Dennis Zongker | 22 comments »

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 6 weeks of cutting, gluing, drawing layout lines and carving off the larger sections of wood. One of most important steps is matching up the cups of the wood grain while also matching up the color of the wood and density. Since you don’t have to worry about the wood warping, there is no reason to alter the grain direction from board to board to keep it flat. When gluing up for a large carving it is important to have the “cups&#...

Dave's Workshop #17: Handy Mini Multi-Miter Sled

07-24-2016 08:55 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

This is one of those jigs I’ve thought about for a while and finally decided to just do it. It’s down and dirty, focused very much on function and not at all on prettiness. Originally I planned to make a dedicated 90 degree miter gauge since the one for my saw is pretty unreliable. It works, but—well, you know. After I got the 90 degree part finished it occurred to me to try some added functionality. On the board behind the fence I added two fences, one at 45 de...

Mountain Deck #1: I'm new here.

07-24-2016 01:47 PM by bbrewer71 | 4 comments »

I got laid off from my job in April and have been trying to find work in my chosen profession ever since. It ain’t going so well. I have been told that I’m a relic and that they only want young yes men nowadays. Well they can kiss my grumpy 45 year old chief’s adze. So after a few weeks looking, my mother and aunt told me they wanted me to pay me to build a deck on their retirement cabin up in the mountains. I thought cool. “Two weeks a couple a grand in my pocket. A...
