Taking final measurements before cutting the axles Fitting the trunk in the back. Axles cut and fitted. The bed surround is not that heavy, two people can lift and move it. front view. We started to make the front seat. The next set of pictured will be the finished project. .
When I last left you guys I had mentioned that I had “few” tools incoming from fleabay and elsewhere. Well they have been slowly trickling in all week and aside from a couple still outstanding I have the makings of what I am considering my student set of tools. I won’t bore you too much with the details and just get on with the pics and inventory listings.. First up are my hand planes so far. Most if not all of them require either just some sharpening or a complete ...
Ron sanding the frame. Bill jumped in to help sand the frame.The frame has 1/2” round over inside and out except for where the axles go.More sanding.And… more sanding.And… more sanding. I hate sanding. A dry fit to see how it all looks together.We already sent the wheels to the painters shop.Wish we had the wheels here.The axles have a 1/16” gap all the way around the support to allow for expansion and contraction.It’s late Saturday night and there in one more ...
Well, she is almost finished. The back is on and there are just minor details left. I was pleased with how the back turned out. I was wanting it to contrast with the rest. My daughter didn’t really want this, but once it was on, she really liked it. Thanks for looking everyone. The next time I post on this, it will be a finished project.
I have used Google SketchUp (free version) for the last few years and have found it to be excellent for designing projects like this. All my crates are designed and costed based on these types of drawings.For this project I tried something new in the design…I added the bolts I will use to put it all together. The picture of the bolts was done by hiding the rest of the crate…it took about 5 seconds to hide the other components. The finished crate will be 11 feet high, 11 feet dee...
I have been busy working and my daughter has ben busy with school, so we haven’t had much time to spend on this. We have made some progress though. A little each week. She has cut and shapeed the handles with the router. Finished all the doors. She sprayed the whole thing down with strong tea to add tannins to the pine. We used this ammonia. We sealed it in the shower with the ammoina overnight. We pulled it out and looked at it. I was pleased. ...
I gave up on finishing this checkerboard project in time for Christmas, and then I was out of commission with a bad chest cold for another three weeks. Once I was back to 100%, I got to work finishing my White Oak Bookcase project. Now it’s time I got this one back on track. The last thing I had done on this project was to glue up all the squares for the top. I did half of the board at a time and then used my biscuit joiner to join the two sections together. I put in some time ...
THE ART OF NOT TAKING A TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM!Yesterday I awoke out of my daze of admiring a quilted maple block with a shocking sensation and blood everywhere. The dull blade on my bandsaw did not help and using my hands to push the beautiful block through didn’t help either. Simple word of advise which many of you can attest too. Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick! Lets say it all together now! Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick!Keep your tools sharp and ...
The devil is in the details. That’s especially true for an impatient lout like me. When it’s close to being done, I want it done now! I decided to work backwards. My shelves are going to be surrounded by the same style of trim I made for my home. I decided to use a little facetted rossette pattern in the major areas. I’ll let you see for yourself a little further down. I started with solid cherry flooring – $1.00 a foot. I had to strip the finish with a belt sand...
My new 1.5 inch flush trim router bit from Whiteside Router bits was purchased with a generous amount of glue covering it (to prevent rust, and from cutting yourself). How might I get this glue off?
