Hot Rod FORDS #7: We have a radiator...

02-07-2018 09:12 AM by crowie | 6 comments »

We have a radiator… Not an easy task but a lot of guess work and sanding have proved the deal…. I’ve been working on the chassis, securing the engine in place, the positioning of the rear wheels,also the steering wheel, gear stick, and pedals….The steering wheel is similar to that which Dutchy showed in his “how to”, though I’ve had difficulty finding a good range of timber button at the local large sewing shop. Were I’m in ...

Hot Rod FORDS #5: The seats

02-04-2018 11:40 PM by crowie | 8 comments »

The seats… Well at first I was going to do something similar to the beaut dowel seats in Bruce’s [aka htl] VW Thing BUT. I had a look around the internet images of some beautiful Hot Rod Ford T-Buckets and they either had a fully upholstered high back bench seat or fancy bucket seats; I decided on bucket seats.

Going to be using the plans for the Power Wagon [Mack] body and the bump box off one of Toys & Joys other trucks to make a mostly scratch built dump truck or maybe a wrecker, we’ll see where the wood wants to go when I get that far.Here’s what got done today. I needed to build the body first because I extended the cab and didn’t want to make the frame till I could see what was going to happen. The reason for the truck is to find a place for...

And here’s how I cut the wood down for my wheels.I cut the board just a tad over size 2 3/4” then rip on the table saw using a rip blade that came with the saw and it does a pretty smooth job of it. The project page is here.

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #10: Rattles and custom storage box (drawing included)

01-22-2018 06:05 PM by sras | 5 comments »

I just posted my rattles & box project and then I remembered I took enough build pictures for a blog post. So, here it is. The fun thing about this project is that it requires very little materials. There are three blanks cut from bird’s eye maple. I ended up cutting the middle one a little thin so I added a veneer of mahogany to each side. The caps have recesses formed by a 1” core box bit in a drill press. The caps are cut to length. Next caps are glued t...
