Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms

07-22-2018 05:34 PM by AandCstyle | 12 comments »

I recently visited the Stickley Museum. I did a review last week and a few people asked for more pix. Fellow LJ Sawdust2012 has a cousin that is the Executive Director of the museum and she authorized me to post the pix I had taken. Thank you Sawdust2012, aka Tim. The front of the house. The adjacent buildings that were meant to be dormitories for a school that never got off the ground. Stickley thought that wicker furniture was a nice counter point to his ...

Dutchy Excavator Build #3: Tracks complete.. moving on..

06-03-2018 09:25 AM by darkmyble | 9 comments »

Hi folks… well I eventually got the tracks finished. I’ve not been doing so well with my health so had to take a few days ‘rest’ urghhhh.. The one thing I like about this plan is it’s easy to follow and concise. More so than any others. Despite being a relative newcomer to the world of model building I’ve amassed hundreds of plans. I have to say these plans are far superior in every way. Right so finishing up the tracks was a fairly straightforward pr...

Dutchy Excavator Build #2: Adding uniformed rounded ends to track parts...

05-22-2018 03:01 PM by darkmyble | 9 comments »

Hi folks.. I’m cracking on with the Dutchy Excavator and been working on the tracks. Parts B & C are exactly the same except that part B has a 2mm hole and parts C has a 2.5mm hole. The issue I was having was making the rounded edges to both parts B and C. I was knocking off the corners with the bench sander and then sanding them round with my proxxon pen sander.. it wasnt brilliant to be honest. Uniformity is the key.. and for me this is a huge build, and if i’m goi...

Dutchy Excavator Build #1: Tracks...

05-18-2018 08:22 AM by darkmyble | 13 comments »

Hi folks.. I have been challenged to build the Dutchy Excavator. This will really test my skills and equipment to the max. The level of detail and precision is immense. So i thought id tackle the most tedious part first. I spent yesterday afternoon cutting and prepping some Sapele which i’ll use for the track parts. This species of mahogany is lovely and it was a great find amongst the other window frames that are thrown away after being replaced with UPVC. I have access to a loca...

Prairie Style Mosaics #1: First Things First

05-05-2018 01:04 PM by EarlS | 8 comments »

There were some folks that were curious about how to make prairie style mosaics like the one that was on my Box Swap submission. I’m writing this as I work on another mosaic for an extra box that was started for the swap. Hopefully this will help. For me, this isn’t a quick process. The 2 mosaics for the box swap took 50+ hours. Find a design Use Google search to search for the style you are interested in and then go to to the “Images” tab. Generally, includ...

After I glued the two halves together I let it dry overnight. Then I finished turning the outside, parted off the top glue block, and sanded to 220 grit. Now it’s ready for the finish. I’ll post the finished hollow form in the projects section.

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...
